A geometric model for the thermodynamics of continuous media is constructed, providing a clearer meaning to the commonly used concept of `processes` and `transformations`. The aim is to elucidate a clear ground suited to analyse thermodynamic transformations outside equilibrium. The model is applied to the thermodynamics of simple materials and explicit expressions for the existence of an entropy function are obtained. 
Thermodynamics of semiconductors with impurities
In this paper we construct a geometric model for the thermodynamics of semiconductors with impurities, using a nonconventional model based on the extended irreversible thermodynamics with internal
A Geometrical Model for a Fluid Flow in Porous Structures
In a previous paper a geometric model for thermodynamics of porous media filled by a fluid flow was constructed, using a nonconventional model based on the extended irreversible thermodynamics with
Thermodynamics of Mixtures as a Problem with Internal Variables. The General Theory
Abstract A model of a mixture with N different components is analyzed from a thermodynamic viewpoint with internal variables, both in the presence and absence of viscosity. Thermodiffusion phenomena
Thermodynamics for Fluid Flow in Porous Structures
In a previous paper in the framework of the extended irreversible thermodynamics with internal variables a non conventional thermodynamical model for fluid flow through porous solids was given
A geometric perspective on Irreversible Thermodynamics. Part I: general concepts
A new geometrical formulation of the thermodynamics of irreversible processes revisiting Coleman-Owen material point model has been proposed by the authors (in collaboration with P. Rogolino) a
Constitutive Equations for Internal Variables Thermodynamics of Suspensions
Abstract A description of mixtures, including matter diffusion and suspensions, is analyzed from a thermodynamic viewpoint with internal variables. In order to consider dissipative effects due to
MATERIAL ELEMENT MODEL AND THE GEOMETRY OF THE ENTROPY FORM
In this work we analyze and compare the model of the material (elastic) element and the entropy form developed by Coleman and Owen with that one obtained by localizing the balance equations of the
Thermodynamics of heterogeneous and anisotropic nonlinear ferroelastic crystals
In a previous paper, in a geometrized framework for the description of simple materials with internal variables, the specific example of ferroelastic crystals with anisotropy grain-tensors a la
Material point model and the geometry of the entropy form
In this work we investigate the material point model and exploit the geometrical meaning of the "entropy form" introduced by B.Coleman and R.Owen. We analyze full and partial integrability
