A group of researchers from Samara Polytech has developed a new mathematical model that would help to understand different physical systems.
The researchers developed the new model based on a version of third-generation thermodynamics. The model, titled, “Development, theoretical research and experimental verification of mathematical models of oscillatory processes, heat and mass transfer and thermomechanics with two- and multiphase delays” was among the winners of RFBR contest.
Talking about the new model, project manager, Professor Igor Kudinov explained, “Classical thermodynamics is not suitable for describing processes that occur under local nonequilibrium conditions, since it is based on the principle of local equilibrium. Our project is important both for fundamental science and for practical applications. To accomplish the tasks, we plan to create a new, unparalleled software package designed for 3-D modeling of high-speed local nonequilibrium processes of heat, mass and momentum transfer. Thus, our method opens up wide possibilities for studying processes that are practically significant from the point of view of modern nanotechnology.”
