Abstract In this paper, a set of constitutive relationships arising from the coupling of stress with concentration, are derived using the extended irreversible thermodynamics formalism. In complex fluids that present flow-induced changes in their internal structure, the stress constitutive equation is coupled to an evolution equation of a scalar representing the flow-induced modifications in the internal structure of the fluid, and to the constitutive equation for the mass flux. In particular… Expand
