The invariant forms of rheological equations of state for a homogeneous continuum, suitable for application to all conditions of motion and stress, are discussed. The right invariance properties can most readily be recognized if the frame of reference is a co-ordinate system convected with the material, but it is necessary to transform to a fixed frame of reference in order to solve the equations of state simultaneously with the equations of continuity and of motion. An illustration is given of… Expand
The hydrodynamics of materials whose rheological properties are complicated
The rheologist can make predictions about the behaviour of a material in bulk under various imposed external conditions by solving equations of state in conjunction with equations of motion and of continuity. Expand
A Rheological Equation of State which Predicts Non‐Newtonian Viscosity, Normal Stresses, and Dynamic Moduli
An equation of state is formulated from the classical Maxwell assumptions of superposition of the effects due to strain and rate of deformation in a strained fluid. Except for the form of the timeExpand
The rheology of suspensions and its relation to phenomenological theories for non-newtonian fluids
Abstract Theoretical results from the field of suspension rheology are studied in the general context of nonlinear continuum mechanics, in order to extract information regarding the formulation of aExpand
On the use of convected coordinate systems in the mechanics of continuous media
The use of a coordinate system convected with the moving medium for describing its mechanics, first proposed by Hencky (5), has since been extended by several authors, and has several advantages overExpand
On Thermomechanical Formulation of Theories of Continuous Media
The first part of this paper is concerned with some basic developments within the scope of the classical (three-dimensional) thermomechanics. Specifically, setting aside the invariance conditionsExpand

The invariant forms that equations of state of continuous matter may take in general relativity, when the rheological behaviour of matter at any event may depend on previous rheological statesExpand
An invariant solution of the Fokker-Planck equation and rheological equation of state of a macromolecular solution
The Fokker-Planck equation is solved for a soft dumbbell in a homogeneous hydrodynamic field invariantly with respect to rheonomous transformations. The equation of state for a soft dumbbell withExpand
On the response of non-dissipative solids
Abstract In this paper we develop a description for the mechanical response of non-dissipative solids. Unlike the classical approach, a relative deformation gradient tensor is introduced and, basedExpand
The Mechanics and Mathematics of Bodies Described by Implicit Constitutive Equations
In this short paper, I provide a brief discussion of the rationale and need for implicit constitutive relations for describing the response of many real materials. Classical theories to describe theExpand
Comparative study of some constitutive equations characterising non-Newtonian fluids
This paper compares, in a general way, the predictions of the constitutive equations given by Rivlin and Ericksen, Oldroyd, and Walters. Whether we consider the rotational problems in cylindricalExpand


A Continuum Theory of Rhelogical Phenomena
WHEN materials of different kinds are subjected to mechanical actions we may observe a great variety of rheological phenomena, and we shall confine our attention here to a certain group of them whichExpand
