Abstract:

The project is concerned with the study of various nonequilibrium processes, specifically those that can be conducted at a steady rate. New experimental data are interpreted on the basis that the properties of terminal stationary states will define the steady flow of heat, mass, andor volume across a gradient region. A major point of emphasis is that experimental unknowns are lumped into a clearly defined gradient region so that data correlation can be established by properties of well-defined terminal regions. This is different from usual kinetic and heat-transfer approaches in which temperature gradients pose a serious problem when experimental verification is required on a microscopic basis. Surface temperatures in accommodation experiments are a good example. Author As appendixes there are attached papers on 1 migrational properties for the steady forced vaporization of water, 2 critical pressure index for nitroglycerine sensitivity, and 3 cluster coefficient of water.
