Marcelo Errera's curator insight, September 24, 2017 4:15 PM
Very good piece from Quartz. It is a fresh comprehensive  tell of how constructal law came to be by the mind of Adrian Bejan.
The idea that no flow-system prevails if freedom to morph is not present and that the morphing goes in the direction of facilitating access to what flows is powerful. Now one seeks the features of a system with freedom to morph and try to anticipate the trends of such changes.
In the case of wealth inequality we discovered that if the economy is based on the movement of goods with close relation between energy expenditure and wealth production, it is inevitable that a hierarchical network of distribution of goods and production of wealth will take place.
Organization of flow-systems towards more and more efficient energy expenditure in the movement of goods is key.
It does not mean an ultimate fate, rather the presence of a strong forcing factor.
We have seen a trend of decoupling generation of wealth and energy expenditure these last two decades - that is suppose to rearrange the flow network of wealth. We shall see.
Perhaps, what constructal law is just saying is that pushing against the flow is unfruitful for wealth distribution. Rather we shall discover another flow-system of wealth in which the natural tendency will make wealth reach more and more parts of the population. In all cases, freedom to morph must be present.
It's a challenge to all of us, now that we accept that there is a natural law in play. 
Let's follow the flow.

Beautiful mathematical model based on guessed physics.

Is there optimality in nature designs ? Based on what ?

What about the physics behind those beautiful drawings and photos ?

Model and theory. What is the difference ? Why someone chooses to minimize or maximize entropy generation ?

It's a pity the authors and PNAS reviewing process missed pieces in the literature that explain the physical principles. Neglecting a thorough and fair review may lead people to miss important contributions on the physics behind self-organization of systems such tree-like networks. 

Here some clues published in physics literature accessible to anyone that seeks the physics behind design in nature.

What's the Meaning of Life? Physics. | Asynsis Principle-Constructal Law | Scoop.it

A revolutionary law of physics explains it all—sports and technology, air currents and population growth, migration and social hierarchy.


When you think of physics, what comes to mind? Atomic energy? Gravitational waves? Maybe Newtonian equations? Adrian Bejan thinks of those things too. But the iconoclastic energy scientist—a mechanical engineering professor at Duke University and one of the world’s foremost experts on thermodynamics—thinks of pretty much everything else as well. The same principles of physics, he argues, can be applied to all things that move, morph, and flow, from sports and technology to air currents and population growth, migratory patterns and social hierarchy.

Great recognition by ASME and a quick reminder that engineering goes beyond of making things work. Alternatively is " the application of science and mathematics by which the properties of matter and the sources of energy in nature are made useful to people" Merrian-Webster.

Why does one (or we) practice engineering ?  What moves us to do it ? Why do we employ creativity ? And furthermore, why rivers do it ? 

Engineering is practiced not only by "intelligent" beings, it is a way nature follows the constructal law.

Constructal Model Of Fitts’s Law To Predict Speed–accuracy Trade-off

Constructal Model Of Fitts’s Law To Predict Speed–accuracy Trade-off | Asynsis Principle-Constructal Law | Scoop.it

"The Constructal law provides novel modeling tools to better understand the complexity in physical and biological processes. The law begins with the design and optimization of engineered systems and discovers a deterministic principle for the generation of geometric form in natural systems. The intri- cate design of all human–machine interfaces can bene t from the Constructal law. In this paper, the Constructal law is used to predict minimum time (optimal) of travel using experimental data obtained from a large-scale human–machine interface study along with the use of Fitts’s law. The results dem- onstrate a great potential to utilize Constructal law as complementary to Fitts’s law in the design of human–machine systems. Future efforts will include the application of the integrated Constructal– Fitts’s law concept to assist in the prediction of effective outcomes for various ergonomic and human factor-related conditions that exist in the work environment."

Celestial bodies born like cracking paint

Celestial bodies born like cracking paint | Asynsis Principle-Constructal Law | Scoop.it
Researchers have explained why objects in the universe come in a wide variety of sizes, from the largest stars to the smallest asteroids -- and it has a lot to do with how paint cracks when it dries. When a volume is under internal tension -- as the early universe was due to gravity -- the most efficient way to relieve that tension is by 'cracking' hierarchically -- few large and many small.

Via Marcelo Errera
NigelReading|ASYNSIS's insight:
The principle of least action/energy, analogical (self-similar), optimal feedback loops, & irreversibility (the arrow of time), all lead to these dynamical symmetries of information flows & geometric forms.
Another way of referring to gravitational "tension" is gravitational "potential energy" or even gravitational "entropy-production".
We now know that QM entanglement entropy is equivalent to spacetime curvature (linked by computational complexity universality - ER=EPR theory), so Adrian Bejan is absolutely correct.
Entropy production (and complexity) is maximised when we have a hierarchy of masses in the universe.
This increased complexity speeds the universe more easily & rapidly towards thermal equilibrium.
Just as a comet is more interesting than an asteroid, our universe chooses a more complex path, most simply.
The "Synplexity" forms that these #Constructal flows yield are described by the #Asynsis principle. #FormFollowsFlow

Constructal Law and Second Law Conference | Asynsis Principle-Constructal Law | Scoop.it

               CONSTRUCTAL LAW  &  SECOND LAW CONFERENCE

 

                               18-19 May 2015   Parma, Italy

 

                                      http://www.clc2015.eu

 

                              Early registration: 15 November 2014 

 

The Constructal Law governs the phenomena of design and evolution in nature. The conference explores the unifying power of the Constructal Law and its applications in all the domains of design generation and evolution, from biology and geophysics to social organization, energy sustainability and security. 
The conference also covers the Second Law, and how the Constructal Law fits in thermodynamics. The Constructal Law and the Second Law are self-standing as first principles. Together, they empower science much more than the Second Law alone.

NigelReading|ASYNSIS's insight:

There's more below on the Asynsis-principle Constructal law and how working with us, stakeholders can add world-class quality with strong Asian values to their new architecture & design projects here in Asia.
It's a compelling, universally applicable new methodology for optimising beauty in design, efficiencies in construction and operations whilst also enhancing project and brand value, in the built environment & beyond.
The Hong Kong Spin is proposed as ideally, a PPP with the government of the HK SAR and a commercial consortium, for which we seek interest.
It would also serve as a demonstration project for the new optimal, sustainable design methods of the Asynsis-Constructal paradigm. When shown to the Tourism commission and former Commerce and Economic Development secretary before, the reaction was very positive indeed.
The ideal site is WKCD, with the HKS having a value-adding catalysing "one country, two systems" (Greek letter Phi, Chinese character Zhong) symbolism.

Like the London Eye at the Culture and Arts-focused Southbank and the Eiffel Tower, it would be a bespoke-tailored city branding icon for our beautiful fusion city, giving us competitive advantage over our regional rivals like Singapore.
The original complete project delivery team for concept (first published and exhibited in 1997 via an HKIA Handover competition), delivery and engineering would again be engaged in this enterprise.

It's a historical first as far as we know in the sense that an architect has just presented at a science conference as a direct contributor to that particular science, which is a thermodynamics and geometry-led design Theory of Everything in Complexity.

and

2. a promotional-capabilities document explaining the significance of that link between the arts and sciences in terms of design, development and operations in the built environment to help promote optimal, sustainable and (very) beautiful international-standard and Chinese-compatible design, particularly in China and wider Asia.
