We consider the equations of motion when we take into consideration more than one independent float transport. As an example we consider the Coriolis forces and Eötvös effect, both related to the Earth rotation and some linear transport in fluids; such problems relate to a double system of equations. In solids, a fracture event can be related simultaneously to the shear and rotation fracture process. The molecular transport introduced into the solid continuum plays an essential role in the fracture processes; for this molecular transport we propose the relations similar to the Navier–Stokes equations. For fluids we consider the molecular stresses; further, we follow the Landau and Lifschitz (1959) approach. Finally we discuss a flow motion in glaciers and the related fracture properties: here we combine some processes occurring in solids and fluids, as in glaciers there appear both the fracture events and the ice-vibrations as a mixture of fracture and flow processes.
