Theoretical and Numerical Studies of Anelastic Materials

The paper deals with the formulation of a constitutive equation for anelastic materials for which the stress depends on the current deformation gradient \(\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{F}\) and its rate \({\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{\dot{F}}}\). Coleman and Mizel1 developed a thermodynamic theory for such a class of materials. The stress tensor is decomposed into an elastic omponent \({\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{\sigma } ^e}\) and a dissipative component \({\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{\sigma } ^d}\). Thus, let \({\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle-}$}}{\sigma }} = {\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{\hat{\sigma }}}(F,\dot{F})\) and \({\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{\sigma } ^e} = {\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{\sigma } ^e}(F) = \underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{\sigma } (F,0)\) and \({{{\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{\sigma }}}^{d}} = {{{\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{\sigma }}}^{d}}(F,\dot{F}) = \hat{{\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{\sigma }}}(F,\dot{F}) - {{{\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{\sigma }}}^{\varepsilon }}(F)\). The Clausius-Duhem inequality leads to \({\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{T} ^e} = {\sigma _O}\partial \psi /\partial \underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{F}\) where \({\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle\thicksim}$}}{T} ^e}\) is the first Piola-Kirch-hoff elastic stress tensor, U is the free energy function. The, dissipative component should satisfy the inequality.
