In papers [1, 2, 3] phenomenological wave equations of heat conduction, thermoelasticity and thermoelectro-magneto-elasticity have been derived. A characteristic property of these equations is their hyperbolic character which means, that disturbations of any field, including the thermal propagate with finite velocity. These equations were obtained on the basis of the generalized Onsager relations by introducing some terms depending on the rate of variability of the stream, which permits the use of these equations not only for stationary dynamical processes but also for the processes of marked nonstationary character. This generalization and its consequences and thermodynamical modifications leads among other things to the elimination of the paradoxical parabolism of the heat equation and the fields coupled with the thermal field.
