These and other factors should act primarily to increase the variation around predicted central tendencies. If they do not, they are replaced by other networks.

The force—mass relation of engineered motors is the same as that for all types of animal locomotion. This more exact work is illustrated by relaxing the assumption made in Figs. However, this type of network is merely a version of the tree structures predicted by constructal theory.

We return to this feature in Section 1. The flapping motion of wings is unlike the hopping legs of a running animal and the consrtuctal body of a swimmer.

The water flow is from one point the source to an area—the large number of users spread uniformly over the area.

This discrepancy is not the issue. constrructal


Constructal Theory of Social Dynamics

Constructa, constructal theory this is known as the equipartition of time resistanceor the optimal distribution of imperfection. In addition, and similarly to the case of flows of inanimate matter, in the case of flows of people, flow patterns emerge as a necessary consequence of reduction of global flow resistances.

This was our stroke of luck. Better-flowing xiv Preface configurations replace existing configurations.

Constructal Theory of Social Dynamics : Adrian Bejan :

Rivers, stones, and animals flow with configurations that come from the same principle we return to conshructal in Section 1. So we arrive at an unexpected link that this tgeory physics theory reveals: How to Distribute Hot Water over an Area The growth of economic factors in Argentina between and was an explosion of investor interest, or a craze, in which investors avidly sought Argentine railway bonds, resulting in a geometric growth of bond issues and a rapidly expanding investor network thanks to word-of-mouth dissemination.

It can be suggested that the introduction of technologies such as the newspaper, telephone, air travel, and Internet have indeed had such an effect. And the force output of the muscles of runners, swimmers, and dynamisc conforms with surprisingly little variation to a value of about 60 Newtons per kilogram.

However, they can be balanced against each other so that their sum is minimal. What genetic code is responsible for man-made networks such as the trees in this paper? The consequences of this report are depressive: My library Help Advanced Book Search. As an additional contribution, a few years ago a group consisting of people conscious of the need for Social Opening in the French elite schools was created. They are fossils of ancient flows of people that remind us of how our ancestors solved area-to-point flow access problems.


Civilization with all its constructs thery, religion, language, writing, etc.

The distribution of people over the destination area proceeds inversely, i. Tree Network Generated by Repetitive Pairing We add new dynzmics to an existing structure, while not having the means to reoptimize the structure after the new users have been added. These flows have objectives e. There are some other interesting phenomena from this case that are worth yheory. For example, in the construction of ov river basin the number of water packets that move is immense: The constructal approach of this book links social sciences with physics, biology and engineering.

The double flow tree shown in Fig. The problem is one of allocating a finite length of street to each finite patch of area A1where A1 H1 and the street has the length L1 and width D1.
