Reciprocity and variational theorems in a generalized thermoelastic theory for non-simple materials with voids
Received: 22 November 1989
Abstract In the context of a temperature-rate dependent formulation of thermodynamics for non-simple elastic solids with voids, we prove reciprocity and variational theorems for the mixed initial-boundary value problem. A minimum principle is also established in the isothermal (purely mechanical) case.
