@article{Junker2020AnEH, title={An extended Hamilton principle as unifying theory for coupled problems and dissipative microstructure evolution}, author={P. Junker and D. Balzani}, journal={Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics}, year={2020}, volume={33}, pages={1931-1956} }

An established strategy for material modeling is provided by energy-based principles such that evolution equations in terms of ordinary differential equations can be derived. However, there exist a variety of material models that also need to take into account non-local effects to capture microstructure evolution. In this case, the evolution of microstructure is described by a partial differential equation. In this contribution, we present how Hamilton’s principle provides a physically sound… Expand
