A geometric model for magnetizable bodies with internal variables

M. Francaviglia, Liliana Restuccia, P Rogolino

Abstract


In a geometrical framework for thermo-elasticity of continua with internal variables we consider a model of magnetizable media previously discussed and investigated by Maugin. We assume as state variables the magnetization together with its space gradient, subjected to evolution equations depending on both internal and external magnetic fields. We calculate the entropy function and necessary conditions for its existence
