Definition of the noun adiabatic process
What does adiabatic process mean as a name of something?
- (thermodynamics) any process that occurs without gain or loss of heat
Adiabatic process: An adiabatic process is one that occurs without transfer of heat or matter between a system and its surroundings. A key concept in thermodynamics, the adiabatic process provides a rigorous conceptual basis for the theory used to expound the first law of thermodynamics.
- also known as 绝热过程

Thus a system undergoing an adiabatic process may be thought of as being surrounded by a boundary impassable to heat. By contrast, processes that do involve the gain or loss of heat are called nonadiabatic or diabatic processes.
