The book begins with a brief review of equilibrium systems and transport and rate processes, then covers the following areas: theory of nonequilibrium thermodynamics; dissipation function; entropy and exergy; analysis and case studies on using the second law of thermodynamics; economic impact of the nonequilibrium thermodynamics theory; analysis of transport and rate processes; membrane transport; dissipative structures and biological systems; and other thermodynamic approaches and extended nonequilibrium thermodynamics.
· Summarizes new applications of thermodynamics as tools for design and optimisation
· Covers second law and exergy analysis for sustainable development
· Promotes understanding of the coupled phenomena of natural processes
