In a class of local thermodynamic processes we shall consider a subset which will be compatible with the internal constitutive assumptions describing the internal physical constitution of a body B, i.e. compatible with a material(*) of a body B. Such a subset of a local thermodynamic process space, will be called admissible for the constitutive assumptions in question.
