Abstract: Constructal theory proposes to see living bodies as machines that are subjected to constraints, which are constructed with a goal, an objective, which is to obtain maximum efficiency. The Constructal Law states that if a system has freedom to morph it develops in time the flow architecture that provides easier access to the currents that flow through it. Here, the term “flow” means everything that invades a territory, such that in a living territory as it is the human body it encompasses flows of heat, electricity and biologic fluids, and also flow of mechanical stresses.
