Thermodynamics of Continious Means

Kinematics: configuration, deformation and movement. Fundamental principles of mechanics: principle of conservation of mass, principle of virtual powers (conservation of linear and angular momentum), principle of conservation of energy (first law of thermodynamics), second law of thermodynamics. Constitutive equations for solids: elastic solid, elasto-plastic solid, viscoelastic solid. Fourier’s law. Heat conduction. Wave propagation.
