Abstract:It is shown that an isolated thermal inertance does not obey the second law of thermodynamics. Consequently, such an element should not be used in physical systems theory. To eliminate the structural gap in the thermal domain of current physical systems theory, a new framework is introduced using Bond Graph concepts. These Thermodynamic Bond Graphs are the result of synthesis of methods used in thermodynamics and in mechanics.
