They showed that when the heat generation rate is low, the Boussinesq condition of isochoric flow and heat transfer is approximated.
B] is the deviatoric part of the isochoric left Cauchy-Green tensor.
For calculation purposes it is accepted that during initial compression in individual volume parts, adiabatic compression and isochoric heat transfer (5) can be expressed as:

v] is the isochoric heat capacity per unit mass, and [gamma] is the heat capacity ratio [C.
eta]] (X,N,t) of the area element dA: in the case of an isochoric flow (the jacobian equal 1), we have:
The observation was striking and led to numerical simulations of isochoric cooling that show that the composition of the residual gases in the vessel remains frozen to a temperature as high as 1650[degrees]K after hours of standing at the final room temperature.
This procedure is justified by the fundamental thermodynamic approach, although the empirical data obtained via the observation of the temperature dependence of the isobaric volume or the isochoric pressure for the ideal gas are usable for this purpose as well.
Isochoric projections combined with homogenization temperatures indicate a potentially large range in entrapment temperatures and/or ambient fluid pressure.
Figures for isochoric heat capacity against temperature obtained with the new equation, for example, differed sharply with those from previous models.
An incompressible material such as rubber is isochoric in the sense that there is no change in volume during deformation; thus the constraint J = 1 is applied to the strain energy density function.
This expression, together with an equation for the ideal gas heat capacity, enables a thermodynamically consistent calculation of many properties of hydrogen in the liquid, vapor, and supercritical phases (density, isochoric and isobaric heat capacities, sound speed, phase boundaries, enthalpy, etc.
