1 Institute of Technical Physics 1 conduction Hyperbolic heat conduction equation (HHCE) Outline 1. Maxwell – Cattaneo versus Fourier 2. Some properties of the HHCE 3. Objections against the HHCE – a misunderstanding 4. A physical explanation of the relaxation time Bernd Hüttner CPhysFInstP, Stuttgart 1. Maxwell – Cattaneo versus Fourier

2 Institute of Technical Physics 2 1. What is wrong with the parabolic heat conduction equation? It predicts an infinite propagation velocity for a finite thermal pulse ! How can this happens? = const. The cause and effect in this case occur at the same instant of time, implying that its position is interchangeable, and that the difference between cause and effect has no physical significance.

10 10 In this paper the HHCE is inspected on a microscopic level from a physical point of view. Starting from the Boltzmann transport equation we study the underlying approximations. We find that the hyperbolic approach to the heat current density violates the fundamental law of energy conservation. As a consequence, the HHCE predicts physically impossible solutions with a negative local heat content. The physical defects of hyperbolic heat conduction equation Körner and Bergmann - Appl. Phys.

11 Institute of Technical Physics 11 Derivations of the MCE 1. Simple Taylor expansion : 2. From the Boltzmann equation Hüttner – J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 11 (1999) In the frame of the Extended Irreversible Thermodynamics ( 0. Maxwell (1867) has suppressed the term because he assumed that the time is too short for a measurable effect)

12 Institute of Technical Physics Classical irreversible thermodynamics Based on the assumption of local thermal equilibrium, Onsager linear relations J i =  L ik ·X k and positive entropy production Fourier’s law q = - l gradTparabolic diff. equation local in space and time, no memory, close to equilibrium

13 Institute of Technical Physics Extended thermodynamics Based on an extension of thermodynamical variables (S, T, p, V, fluxes) Taking into account only the heat flux q one finds: hyperbolic diff. equation Temperature: nonlocal, with memory, far from equilibrium

18 Institute of Technical Physics 18 Electron density – Beer’s law Since c e ~ n e ·T e follows  T ~ n e ·T e That’s why, T e relaxes faster with increasing distance leading to a build up of a temperature gradient
