The assumption of a constitutive entropy flux is a straightforward generalization of the Gibbs-Duhem inequality, and one can prove that in simple cases it leads to the classical form and to the classical results both in irreversible thermodynamics [7] and in thermoelasticity in particular [8].
Shahani and Nabavi [3] solved transiented thermoelasticity problem in an isotropic thick-walled cylinder analytically by using the finite Hankel transform.
Thereby a high-performance wave-propagation algorithm is exploited--combining Lax-Wendroff and Godunov's ideas (Berezovski and Maugin [14])--that yields extremely good results in the simulation of the rapid progression of sharp wave fronts in 2D thermoelasticity under the external action of an applied stress shock.
