The theory of plastic flow may be integrated into the framework of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. Even classical non-equlibrium thermodynamic is suitable to give account on plastic flow but is not flexible enough to describe details quantitatively. The method based on ontroducing dynamic (internal) variables enables thermodynamics to give account on dynamic (or dissipative) structures on an over all way. The most frequently applied classical theories of plasticity have room in this generalized theory.
