Application of LNET Models to Study Thermodiffusion

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology book series (BRIEFSAPPLSCIENCES)


Linear nonequilibrium thermodynamic formulations to study thermodiffusion in liquid mixtures were introduced in Sect. 2.2 of  Chap. 2. In this chapter, application of some of these formulations to thermodiffusion in different types of fluid mixtures and the outcomes are presented.
