Rational Thermomechanics

  • Yurie A. Ignatieff


All Noll’s papers between 1959 and 1966 relating to the field of thermomechanics (thermodynamics of materials), were written in collaboration with B.D. Coleman [12.1]. The latter remembered in 1990: “In the early 1950’s, for graduate courses in physical chemistry at Yale, I read the then standard texts on thermodynamics and selections from the works of Gibbs. I recall being awed by the generality of the subject; it appeared to have deep implications in every branch of macroscopic physics; but I also recall being uneasy about the completeness or clarity (I was not sure which) of its principles” [12.2].
