Construction of the Thermoelasticity Equations on the Basis of Contemporary Notions of Nonlinear Continua Mechanics
The fundamental concepts of the theory of simple thermomechanical materials are applied to a thermoelastic medium. Nonlinear coupled thermoelasticity equations are derived, with free energy and heat flux approximated by polynomials of deformation and temperature invariants. Details of the derivation procedure are presented.
