... of the “human-and-machine species,” wealth, life). This phenomenon is summarized by the constructal law: the occurrence and evolution of designs in nature, its time direction. Based on its record, the constructal law accounts for the design phenomenon and also for all the phenomena that have been described...

... to well known measures of irreversibility such as entropy generation and lost exergy (destroyed available work). Furthermore, the “principle of entransy dissipation minimization” adds nothing to existing work based on minimum entropy generation, minimum thermal resistance, and constructal law. The broader...
