Abstract : The project is concerned with the study of various nonequilibrium processes, specifically those that can be conducted at a steady rate. New experimental data are interpreted on the basis that the properties of terminal stationary states will define the steady flow of heat, mass, and/or volume across a gradient region. A major point of emphasis is that experimental unknowns are lumped into a clearly defined gradient region so that data correlation can be established by properties of well-defined terminal regions. This is different from usual kinetic and heat-transfer approaches in which temperature gradients pose a serious problem when experimental verification is required on a microscopic basis. Surface temperatures in accommodation experiments are a good example. (Author) As appendixes there are attached papers on (1) migrational properties for the steady forced vaporization of water, (2) critical pressure index for nitroglycerine sensitivity, and (3) cluster coefficient of water.
