||ENTROPYGENERATION MINIMIZATION: The Method of Thermodynamic Optimization of Finite Size Systems and Finite-Time Processes
Author: Adrian Bejan
Description: This book presents the diverse and rapidly expanding field of Entropy Generation Minimization (EGM), the method of Thermodynamic optimization of real devices. The underlying principles of the EGM method - also referred to as Thermodynamic optimization, Thermodynamic design, and “finite time thermodynamics are thoroughly discussed, and the methods applications to real devices are clearly illustrated.
