In this paper we derive an explicit formula for a kinetic relation governing the motion of a phase boundary in a bilinear thermoelastic material capable of undergoing solid-solid phase transitions. To obtain the relation, we study traveling wave solutions of a regularized problem that includes viscosity, heat conduction and convective heat exchange with an ambient medium. Both inertia and latent heat of transformation are taken into account. We investigate the effect of material parameters on the kinetic relation and show that in a certain range of parameters the driving force becomes a non-monotone function of the interface velocity. The model also predicts a nonzero resistance to phase boundary motion, part of which is caused by the thermal trapping.
