A novel equation of heat conduction is derived with the help of a generalized entropy current and internal variables. The obtained system of constitutive relations is compatible with the momentum series expansion of the kinetic theory. The well known Fourier, Maxwell-Cattaneo-Vernotte, Guyer-Krumhansl, Jeffreys-type, and Cahn-Hilliard type equations are derived as special cases. Some remarkable properties of solutions of the general equation are demonstrated with heat pulse initial and boundary conditions. A simple numerical method is developed and its stability is proved. Apparent faster than Fourier pulse propagation is calculated in the over-diffusion regime. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

Entropy | Year: 2014

We present the state of the art on the modern mathematical methods of exploiting the entropy principle in thermomechanics of continuous media. A survey of recent results and conceptual discussions of this topic in some well-known non-equilibrium theories (Classical irreversible thermodynamics CIT, Rational thermodynamics RT, Thermodynamics of irreversible processes TIP, Extended irreversible thermodynamics EIT, Rational Extended thermodynamics RET) is also summarized.© 2014 by the authors.

The phenomenon of friction reduces efficiency of almost all machines in practice. In order to reduce the deficits, we have to understand this phenomenon and have to take it into consideration during design in all cases. Nevertheless, in certain cases describing of a friction process is very difficult, because it depends on a lot of parameters. In case of polymers, granular materials or in geology, the rate and state dependent friction have great importance. In this paper, velocity and time dependent friction is examined with the help of a direct shear apparatus, which was developed in our earlier work. © 2015 Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest.

We calculate the rheology-governed time dependence of stress, strain and displacement around an opened long cylindrical tunnel, for arbitrary linear rheological models with finite order time derivatives. © 2010 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

Governing equations of dissipative generalized solid mechanics are derived by thermodynamic methods in the Piola-Kirchhoff framework using the Liu procedure. The isotropic small-strain case is investigated in more detail. The connection to the Ginzburg-Landau type evolution, dual internal variables, and a thermodynamic generalization of the standard linear solid model of rheology is demonstrated. Specific examples are chosen to emphasize experimental confirmations and predictions beyond less general approaches. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
