Internal structures, phase field and balance laws in continuum mechanics

Valeria Berti, Mauro Fabrizio

Abstract


A brief review of some models of phase transitions within the continuum mechanics is presented. A special study is directed to the phenomena of superconductivity, ferromagnetism, shape memory alloys and the behavior of a binary mixture using Cahn- Hilliard equation.
