- adj. engineering Relating to or derived from a postulated principle of design, evolutionary or otherwise, that evolved designs optimize transport, flow, or movement characteristics.
- Coined c. 1996 by Adrian Bejan, possibly modeled on fractal. (Wiktionary)
“Thirteen years ago Bejan developed what he calls constructal theory, a new concept in physics that he believes determines the design of everything in nature.”
“If climate is well described by constructal theory which would not surprise me, as constructal theory covers anything that flows, which includes climate, then it would be fascinating to understand the statistics of the constructal universe.”
“Constructal theory is much in the news, including the application of constructal theory to climate.”
“I have found references to a paper on constructal theory of climate, but cannot find the paper online.”
“Do you know a good source on the statistics of constructal geometries?”
“Are there any R scripts involving constructal geometries?”
“The constructal law shows how the system physically restructures to minimize entropy.”
“Do you have any information about the statistics of constructal geometries?”
“The climate system is a driven, resonant, chaotic, multi-stable, optimally turbulent, constructal, terawatt scale heat engine with a host of known and unknown drivers and feedbacks.”
“Demetris, the comment involved constructal theory.”
