In this Chapter we present two applications of the method of non-commuting variables in thermodynamics and material science. As the first application, we present the scheme allowing to obtain Entropy Balance as the Euler-Lagrange equation using the scalar field of thermasy - a quantity introduced by H.Helmholtz (see [58]) and used later in relativistic thermodynamics (D.van Dantzig, see vL,VD), thermoelasticity (A.Green and Nachdi) and Continuum Thermodynamics (G.Maugin).
