Everything created is predicted by nature:

„The Duke University professor responsible for this theory, Adrian Bejan, received the 2018 Franklin Institute Medal for mechanical engineering on April 19. According to constructal law, all animate or inanimate systems—including art, trees, people, organizations, and financial structures—follow the natural design principle of flow. The rule states that for any system to persist over time, it must evolve to provide easy access to impositions, allowing currents to flow through it, and moving with them. In other words, everyone and everything that hopes to persist or endure must work with external pressures and be formed by them.”

Adrian Bejan
From:Duke University │ Durham, North Carolina
 .
Year:2018
 .
Award: 

Benjamin Franklin Medal

  • Citation: For his pioneering interdisciplinary contributions in thermodynamics and convection heat transfer that have improved the performance of engineering systems, and for constructal theory, which predicts natural design and its evolution in engineering, scientific, and social systems.

Adrian Bejan had to find a way to cool small electronics without using traditional methods. Faced with this challenge, he discovered how to flow heat away from small electronics and follow natural pathways allowing it to escape on its own. This discovery not only keeps your laptop from overheating, it sparked an entire line of thought for Bejan about how natural systems branch and flow called “constructal theory.”
