Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In almost all technical applications momentum, heat, and/or mass transfer occurs. These transfer processes are subject to "losses", which from a thermodynamic point of view can be identified as losses of exergy (available work). A second law analysis (SLA) is appropriate to identify and to quantify these losses by determining the entropy generation involved. Whenever exergy losses are disadvantageous and should be avoided as far as possible it comes to an "Entropy Generation Minimization". The special issue of Entropy collects studies that account for the entropy generation in this sence in various fields.
