Research and Markets: Design with Constructal Theory

Research and Markets has announced that they have published a new report – “Design with Constructal Theory” which is a revolutionary new approach based on physics for understanding and predicting the designs that arise in nature and engineering, from the tree and the forest to the cooling of electronics, urban design, decontamination, and vascular smart materials.
