The paper develops a concept of “composite system” on the basis laid by J. B. Serrin’s accumulation function. A mathematical structure is posed for the accumulation function of the composite system, on which a restriction arising from a “general heat transfer inequality” acts. The result is applied to generalize several questions in the classical thermodynamics of systems. Especially, a novel thermodynamical characterization of the “environment” of a system can be read from the main result.
