# A GEOMETRIC MODEL FOR THE THERMODYNAMICS OF SIMPLE MATERIALS

@article{Dolfin1999AGM, title={A GEOMETRIC MODEL FOR THE THERMODYNAMICS OF SIMPLE MATERIALS}, author={Marina Dolfin and Mauro Francaviglia and Patrizia Rogolino}, journal={Periodica Polytechnica Mechanical Engineering}, year={1999}, volume={43}, pages={29-37} }

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.
