A weak solvability of a system of thermoviscoelasticity for the Jeffreys model

  • V. G. Zvyagin
  • V. P. Orlov


We establish a weak solvability of the initial-boundary value problem for a dynamic model of thermoviscoelasticity. The problem under consideration is an extension of the Jeffreys model obtained with the help of a consequence of the energy balance equation. We study the corresponding initial-boundary value problem by splitting the problem and reducing it to an operator equation in a suitable Banach space.
