CONSTRUCTAL THEORY OF SOCIAL DYNAMICS PDF

It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Constructal Theory of Social Dynamics brings together for the first time social scientists and engineers to develop a predictive theory of social organization, as a conglomerate of mating flows that morph in time to flow more easily people, goods, money, energy, information. These flows have objectives e. The result is organization flow architecture derived from one principle of configuration evolution in time the constructal law : "for a flow system to persist in time, its configuration must morph such that it provides easier access to its streams. Constructal theory predicts animal design and geophysical flows, and makes evolution a part of physics.

In the social sciences, there is substantial literature based on the use of optima to deduce social, population and economic dynamics. The constructal approach of this book links social sciences with physics, biology and engineering. The book explores the deterministic principle that generates a broad array of patterned phenomena, in demography, geography, communications, hierarchy, and multiple scales.

Constructal Theory of Social Dynamics is novel and important because it puts the occurrence of social organization on a scientific basis. It brings social organization under the same physics principle that accounts for the generation of flow architecture design in geophysical flows, animal design, and engineered flows.

This exploratory work adds a dose of determinism to the modeling and predicting of societal flows. Only valid for books with an ebook version.

Combines for the first time theories of general physics and applies them to social sciences Offers a new way to look at social phenomena as part of natural phenomena A new domain of application of engineering such as thermodynamic optimization, thermoeconomics and "design as science" Discusses how the "flow architectures" of natural sciences are also found in social situations Both classes are covered by the same principle the constructal law First work to show that the concept of "efficiency" of engineering has a home in physics and social sciences The constructal law theory puts a scientific principle behind the major challenges of today and the future: sustainable development, energy sufficiency, equilibria between human settlements and environmental ecosystems, optimal allocation, optimal distribution of finite resources, etc.
