The authors define and present the Constructal law as the law of physics that accounts for the natural tendency of all flow systems (animate or inanimate) to evolve into configurations that offer progressively greater flow access over time.
This article shows what make the Constructal law a part of thermodynamics, and that the domains covered by this new law of Physics are broad, ranging from fluid flows to heat and mass transfer.
