A thermodynamic theory for reacting mixtures in electromagnetic fields

  • Rinaldo Borghesani


In this paper the Author gives a self consistent thermodynamic description of a mixture of rigid stationary materials. In this analysis the diffusion effects are neglected whyle the chemical reactions are taken into account; moreover the influence on the mixture due to the presence of electromagnetic fields is discussed in detail.

In questo lavoro l'Autore formula una teoria termodinamica per una miscela costituita di materiali rigidi stazionari, che non diffondono ma che possono reagire chimicamente tra di loro e che sono inoltre soggetti all'azione di campi elettromagnetici.
