The Oscillator with Mechanical and Thermal Attenuation

  • Wilhelm Brenig


As in the case of thermomechanical and thermoelectric effects (Chaps. 19,20) we start our consideration of continuous hydrodynamics with a simple discrete model, see Fig. 28.1. A piston with mass m and cross section A can move between two equal parts (1) and (2) of a closed system (for instance a gas). It is impermeable to particles but permeable to heat.
