A Kind Voice

 

 

Inteview with Adrian Bejan, a former player on the Romanian national basketball team, who is currently a professor of Mechanical Engineering at Duke University.  We will discuss flows in nature and sports, as well as get to know Professor Bejan and his work.

Professor Bejan’s developed the Constructal Law, which is the law of physics that accounts for the universal phenomenon of generation of design (configuration, pattern, geometry) in nature.  The constructal law was stated by Professor Bejan in 1996 as follows: “For a finite-size system to persist in time (to live), it must evolve in such a way that it provides easier access to the imposed currents that flow through it.”
