ENTROPY – Special Issue – Invitation to Submit

The Entropy Production — as Cornerstone in Applied Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics — Dedicated to Professor Signe Kjelstrup on the Occasion of Her 75th Birthday

The purpose of the Special Issue is to demonstrate the strength and importance of the theory of nonequilibrium thermodynamics, with its fundamental basis in entropy production, when used to improve the understanding of processes essential to mankind, industry or nature at large.
The topics cover fundamental aspects and applications of all sorts, for instance the applications Kjelstrup worked on, includes but not limited to:

  • entropy production as the proper basis for transport modelling
  • entropy production and exergy analysis
  • entropy production for surfaces
  • entropy production and entropy balance in thermodynamic modelling of industrial processes
  • entropy production minimization in nature and industry.
