Abstract

We propose a thermodynamic model describing the thermoelastic behavior of composition graded materials. The compatibility of the model with the second law of thermodynamics is explored by applying a generalized Coleman-Noll procedure. For the material at hand, the specific entropy and the stress tensor may depend on the gradient of the unknown fields, resulting in a very general theory. We calculate the speeds of coupled first- and second-sound pulses, propagating either trough nonequilibrium or equilibrium states. We characterize several different types of perturbations depending on the value of the material coefficients. Under the assumption that the deformation of the body can produce changes in its stoichiometry, altering locally the material composition, the possibility of propagation of pure stoichiometric waves is pointed out. Thermoelastic perturbations generated by the coupling of stoichiometric and thermal effects are analyzed as well.
