Thermoelastic Stability of a Finitely Deformed Solid under Nonconservative Loads
Local stability of a finitely deformed solid with internal dissipation, subjected to followed type loads, has been studied by Nemat-Nasser , neglecting all thermal effects. On the other hand, thermoelastic stability under conservative loads was considered by Ericksen  and Koiter . In the present paper, we combine the results in [1–3] to develop conditions for thermoelastic stability of solids subjected to nonconservative surface tractions. We ignore body forces, although they can easily be included.
