The concept of entransy, which describes the capability of heat conduction in the continuum and was originally used for optimization of heat transfer devices, has been extended for optimization of transport networks in this contribution. Based on the definition of the entransy dissipation rate for transport networks, the analysis indicates that the minimum entransy dissipation rate leads to the optimal transfer performance of transport network subject to a given constraint.
