Mixture Theory-Based Poroelasticity and the Second Law of Thermodynamics

  • Stephen C. Cowin


The decisive word in this postulate is the quantifier all it makes the postulate a restrictive condition on the internal constitutive assumptions that can be imposed on systems of the type under consideration.
