18 Oct Two fundamental questions on the essence of the direct method from finite speed thermodynamics and its difference from other methods of irreversible engineering thermodynamics / Două întrebări fundamentale privind esența metodei directe din termodina
Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences (ASTR) 2013
The paper essentially consists of the answers to two important questions related directly to Fundamentals of the Finite Speed Thermodynamics (TVF) and Direct Method (DM), namely, (1) what is Direct Method? Why is it called so? There is also an « indirect method »?, respectively (2) how can First Law for processes with Finite Speed catch irreversibility of these processes, knowing that First Law represents an energy balance of the system, and that it also « catches what remains in the system? ».
