Balance laws are equally applicable to all materials. No specification of material has been done yet. Thus, physics requires the development of additional equations that characterize material behavior. The requirement of the additional—constitutive equations—also comes from mathematics because of the need to close the system of governing equations in which six equations are lacking—Table 4.1.
