Constitutive Assumptions and the Second Law
Let a fixed reference configuration R be assigned for the body B under consideration, and identify each of the material points X of B with the place in space that X occupies when B has the configuration R. A thermodynamic process of B is a collection of functions of and time compatible with the laws of balance of momentum and energy.
