Other Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics Request

  1. Apr 8, 2015 #1
    I've started using LaTeX to take notes on Donald Fitts' Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics. After I finish, I intend to use other resources to add more to it. Fitts' book focuses on classical fluid nonequilibrium thermodynamics (i.e. doesn't use statistical mechanics but instead uses continuum methods and additional postulates such as assumption of local equilibrium, fluxes are linear, homogeneous functions of forces, and the Onsager's reciprocal relation).

    To give you an idea of what Fitts contains I'll list the chapters: The System, The Hydrodynamic Equations, The Assumption of Local Equilibrium, The Phenomenological Relations, The Transport Equation, The Transport of Heat, Electrochemical Systems, Diffusion in Isothermal Systems, Thermal Diffusion, Sedimentation and Centrifugation, Chemical Reactions.

    Essentially I want to find another book that could be used as another source and/or one that focuses on the solid side of it so I can add that to the notes.
