From the Back Cover

Thermodynamic Optimization of Finite-Time Processes R. S. Berry University of Chicago, Illinois, USA V. A. Kazakov University of Sydney, Australia S. Sieniutycz Warsaw Technical University, Poland Z. Szwast Warsaw Technical University, Poland A. M. Tsirlin Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia Thermodynamic Optimization of Finite-Time Processes is the first book to provide a comprehensive treatment integrating finite-time thermodynamics and optimal control, and to give an overview of important breakthroughs in the field which have occurred during the last 20 years. A survey of the optimization technique, including the basics of optimal control theory, and the principal thermodynamic concepts and equations are presented in the first four chapters. The remaining chapters are devoted to the solutions of a variety of finite-time thermodynamic problems, and include coverage of their potential applications for the design of real technological processes, such as:
* heat exchange systems
* mass transfer and separation processes
* commodity exchange as a finite-time thermodynamic process
* heat-driven mechanical processes with one or several reservoirs.
Finally, special emphasis is placed on the consideration of cyclic processes and thermodynamic cycles, and their optimization and efficiencies. Thermodynamic Optimization of Finite-Time Processes is a key resource for chemical and mechanical engineers involved in power systems and process engineering. Researchers in theoretical, physical and industrial chemistry in academia and in industry will also find fresh perspectives in this book that offer new ways to analyze and design a wide variety of processes.
