Acceleration Waves in Elastic Non-Conductors of Heat

  • Peter Chen
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 72)


Now, I shall examine the behaviour of acceleration waves in elastic bodies which do not conduct heat. For such a material body the values internal energy e, the stress T and the absolute temperature θ (strictly positive) are determined by the present values of the deformation gradient F and the entropy η.
