Adiabatic (from Gr.negative + διάβασις passage; transference) refers to any process that occurs without heat transfer. This concept is used in many areas of physics and engineering. Notable examples are listed below.

Automobiles[edit]

  • Engine braking, a feature of some diesel engines, uses adiabatic expansion to diminish the vehicle's forward momentum.

Meteorology[edit]

  • Adiabatic lapse rate, the change in air temperature with changing height, resulting from pressure change.
