A thermomechanical framework for the transition of a viscoelastic liquid to viscoelastic solid. (English) Zbl 1043.74003

From the summary: We present a thermomechanical framework to describe the transition from a viscoelastic fluid to a viscoelastic solid, in which the kinetics associated with the transition and the change of response characteristics prior to, during, and after the transition are modeled within a unified setting. The procedures fit within the general thermodynamic framework that has been developed to describe the response of materials that can exist stress-free in multiple configurations.
