In the celebrated paper on the reciprocal relation for the kinetic coefficients in irreversible processes, Onsager extended Rayleigh’s principle of the least energy dissipation to general irreversible processes. The principle has been shown to be useful in deriving basic equations which describe non-linear and non-equilibrium phenomena in soft matter[1, 2]. Here I will show that the principle is useful in getting an approximation solutions3. Examples are given for contact line dynamics of liquid[4,5] and gelation dynamics6.
