Conduction and Coupled Transports

Chapter
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)

Abstract

Conductive phenomena are ubiquitous in nature and in technical and social systems. We have already seen and discussed examples of uniform models of conduction in fluids and electricity (Chapter 1), in mechanics (Chapter 3), heat (Chapter 4), and chemical processes (Chapter 6). Finally, the foundation was laid for the treatment of conduction in continuous models (Chapter 11).
