Mesoscopic Theories of Heat Transport in Nanosystems by Antonio Sellitto, Vito Antonio Cimmelli, David Jou

By Antonio Sellitto, Vito Antonio Cimmelli, David Jou

This ebook provides generalized heat-conduction legislation which, from a mesoscopic standpoint, are appropriate to new functions (especially in nanoscale warmth move, nanoscale thermoelectric phenomena, and in diffusive-to-ballistic regime) and whilst stay alongside of the velocity of present microscopic study. The equations provided within the booklet have compatibility with generalized formulations of nonequilibrium thermodynamics, going past the local-equilibrium. The e-book contains six major chapters, including a preface and a last part dedicated to the long run views, in addition to an in depth bibliography.

With contributions by way of quite a few specialists

Introductory Solid State Physics (Second Edition)

Assuming an uncomplicated wisdom of quantum and statistical physics, this ebook presents a finished consultant to important actual homes of condensed topic, in addition to the underlying thought valuable for a formal knowing in their origins. the subject material covers the valuable positive aspects of condensed subject physics, yet with specific accessory at the houses of steel alloys.

Multiscale Modeling: From Atoms to Devices

Whereas the proper good points and homes of nanosystems inevitably depend upon nanoscopic info, their functionality is living within the macroscopic international. To rationally boost and thoroughly expect functionality of those platforms we needs to take on difficulties the place a number of size and time scales are coupled. instead of forcing a unmarried modeling method of expect an occasion it used to be no longer designed for, a brand new paradigm has to be hired: multiscale modeling.

Mechanics and Physics of Porous Solids

Mechanics and Physics of Porous Solids addresses the mechanics and physics of deformable porous fabrics whose porous house is crammed by means of one or numerous fluid combinations interacting with the cast matrix. Coussy makes use of the language of thermodynamics to border the dialogue of this subject and bridge the distance among physicists and engineers, and organises the cloth in this kind of method that exact stages are explored, by way of coupled difficulties of accelerating complexity.

However, since we are assuming that the quantity driving the heat flow is ˇ rather than T, we have substituted T with ˇ into the Newton cooling law. The comparison of results from Eqs. ˇ ˇenv / provide the best description of heat transfer in fast processes. , ˇP D 0) by Eq. 41) it follows that Tenv Á ˇenv , which is assumed to be constant, as well as in Eq. 61). Combining Eqs. 70) R r instead of Eq. 62). It is important to note the difference between Eqs. 70), since the term in T= Eq. 62) is absent in Eq.

In Eqs. 13) U0 is given by Eq. U0 Tcv /. 3 The Nonlinear MCV and GK Equations 37 In other words, Eq. 12) points out that a small heat pulse, moving in the same direction of the heat flow, will travel with a velocity which differs from the speed of propagation of pulses in opposite direction, given by Eq. 13). In particular, the theoretical model in Eq. 10) prescribes that the former speed is smaller than the latter one [22, 23]. A similar result has been obtained in Ref. [11] and in Ref. [26] by applying different approaches.
