Franklin Institute Awards, Constructal Workshop and Symposium - In case you hadn’t heard, Adrian Bejan is the receiving the 2018 Benjamin Franklin Medal in Mechanical Engineering from the Franklin Institute. Bejan is being honored for his contributions in thermodynamics and convection heat transfer that have improved the performance of engineering systems, as well as his pioneering interdisciplinary contribution of constructal theory, which predicts natural design … Continue reading Franklin Institute Awards, Constructal Workshop and Symposium
At the Intersection of Physics and Emotion - The Thermodynamics of Emotion In my quest to understand dogs, animal behavior (and therefore human behavior), as well as trauma and somatic healing, I recently found myself at a conference called The Thermodynamics of Emotion. On my way from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon, a few friendly travelers asked me where I was going and … Continue reading At the Intersection of Physics and Emotion
