Thermodynamics websites

In websites, thermodynamics websites are those whose URL indicates a dedication to a specific topic in thermodynamics. The following tables collect some of these websites, ordered by date of launch:

Thermodynamics sites
The following are themed or on pure thermodynamics:

Description



SecondLaw.com
Launch: 1998
By: Frank Lambert
SecondLaw.com (screenshot)The first of a number of websites, including 2ndLaw.com (1999), Shakespeare2ndLaw.com (2001), EntropySimple.com (2001), EntropySite.com (2003), etc., aiming to present the simplified view that entropy is not “disorder”, but rather better explained as energy dispersal. All the sites were transferred to Occidental College (.com → .oxy.edu) in circa 2009.



ThermoHistory.org
Launch: 2003
By: S Carnot (EoHT user)
ThermoHistory.org (screenshot) Contains an except of Lynde Wheeler’s biography of Willard Gibbs and parts of Sadi Carnot’s paper.



ThermoWiki.org (ThermoWiki)
Launch: 2007 (retired: 2009)
By: J.M. Haile
ThermoWiki.org (screenshot)A short-lived wiki, having made 47 articles, with aims to education on thermodynamics topics, particularly chemical thermodynamics.



Sklogwiki.org (SklogWiki)
Launch: 2007
By: Carl McBride
Sklogwiki.org (screenshot)A collection of pages linking external publications on topics in statistical mechanics.



LearnThermo.com
Launch: 2007
By: William Baratuci
LearnThermo.com (screenshot) Contains tutorials, examples, a blog, and links and tools to help students learn thermodynamics. Before that the information was online at ThermoCD.com. ThermoCD.com still exists, but the free Authroware plug-in is required. It can be downloaded from Adobe. [1]

Human thermodynamics sites
The following are sites dedicated or themed on applications of thermodynamics to subjects of the humanities, i.e. in fields of human thermodynamics:

SocialThermodynamics.hu
Launch: 2004
By: Babics Laszlo
SocialThermodynamics.hu (screenshot) Contains Hungarian and English translations of 2003 paper "The Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Mass Societies."



HumanThermodynamics.com
Launch: 2005
By: Libb Thims
HumanThermodynamics.com (screenshot)Gives a layperson overview of how thermodynamics applies to humanities; host to the Journal of Human Thermodynamics; published classic papers among other things.



Negentropy.us (2007)
Negentropie.com (2010?)
Negentropia.com (2010?)
ValterCaggio.com (2002)
Launch: 2002-2010
By: Valter Caggio
Negentropia.com 300pxA set of redirect multi-language (Italian and English primarily) sites dedicated to promoting negentropy as the universal principle to human existence.



HumanChemistry.net
Launch: 2007
By: Libb Thims
HumanChemistry.net (screenshot)Educational site on human chemistry, a prerequisite subject to human chemical thermodynamics.



EoHT.info
Launch: 2007
By: Libb Thims
EoHT.info (screenshot)An encyclopedia of terms, people, and theory surrounding the application of thermodynamics to subjects of humanity.



HumanMolecule.net
Launch: 2008
By: Libb Thims
HumanMolecule.net (screenshot)Educational site on the human molecule, the basic component particle of study in systems of human thermodynamics.



Carbon-Entromorphology.com
Launch: 2008
By: Mark Janes
Carbon-Entromorphology.com (screenshot)Considers a human to be a "giant carbon atom" and uses uses aspects of chemical thermodynamics, particularly the Gibbs free energy equation ΔG = ΔH – TΔS, to explain aspects of humanity, such as good, evil, purpose, evolution, etc.



SocialThermodynamics.org
Launch: 2009
By: Gregory Botanes
SocialThermodynamics.org (screenshot) Uses “social thermodynamics research” and Montecarlo techniques to apply in business and market applications using an external consultation approach. It uses the acronym SThAR or "social thermodynamics applied research" as a logo for the human thermodynamics applications business thermodynamics company.
