The Linearized Theory

  • Heinz Parkus


Like any other theory in nonrelativistic mechanics of continua, thermoelasticity rests on three basic laws or axioms: the law of motion, the theorem of conservation of mass, and the theorem of conservation of energy. In Chapter 5, we shall have opportunity to dwell on these concepts and their implications in some detail and also from a very general point of view. At present, however, we are satisfied to confine our attention to the much less general, but practically very usable and important theory designated in Chapter 1 as “thermoelasticity of small deformations and of small and slow temperature changes.”
