The previously derived expressions for the incremental elastic coefficients of an isotropic medium under initial stress are applied to rubbertype elasticity. As a corollary an exact theory isâ€¦ (More)

1. Introduction. The linear mechanics of fluid-saturated porous media as developed by the author was reviewed and discussed in detail in two earlier papers [l], [2]. In its final form it is based onâ€¦ (More)

1. Introduction. In the linear range a general theory of thermoelasticity based on irreversible thermodynamics was developed and discussed extensively in some earlier work ([3], [4], [9]). It wasâ€¦ (More)

The Thermodynamics of linear irreversible processes is presented from a unified viewpoint. This provides a new and synthetic approach to the linear mechanics of deformation of solids, which includesâ€¦ (More)

Abstract-The nonisothermal finite strain dynamics of a porous solid containing a viscous fluid is developed on the basis of a new thermodynamics of open systems and irreversible processes. The sameâ€¦ (More)

The writerâ€™s theory of surface instability of au elastic body under initial stress in finite strain is extended to anisotropic elasticity. The general characteristic equation for surface instabilityâ€¦ (More)

A new variational principle of virtual dissipation generalizing dâ€™Alembertâ€™s principle to nonlinear irreversible thermodynamics is applied to compressible heatconducting fluids with Newtonian andâ€¦ (More)

The gravitational instability of a simple two-layered medium resting on a rigid base has been treated in terms of the analog model of Biot. In order to avoid complications of purely mathematicalâ€¦ (More)

A thermodynamics of open systems has been developed which provides an entirely new theoretical framework based on novel concepts without any recourse to statistical mechanics, The standard chemicalâ€¦ (More)
