Abstract

Some years ago, Prigogine minimum entropy production principle was generalized by Lebon and Dauby to account for the nonlocal heat transport equation derived by Guyer and Krumhansl. Here, this criterion is extended to incorporate the effects of heat slip flow along the walls. This formulation is shown to be useful for the description of steady heat flow in nanosystems, where the heat slip flow plays a decisive role. © 2010 The American Physical Society.
