This paper presents an analysis of volume average relations in connection with internal energy, net power and the balance of energy in continuum mechanics. The role of the so-called Hill and Hill-Mandel conditions in connection with the averaged energy balance equation has been elucidated. The significance of volume averages of stress moments for the calculation of the average net power is demonstrated.

    Eshelby's formula that relates the strain inside of an ellipsoidal inclusion in an unbounded elastic medium to the uniform strain imposed at infinity is generalized to the cases of poroelastic and thermoelastic materials. This result holds for an arbitrary anisotropy of the inclusion and of the...

    The functional relationship between two symmetric second-rank tensors is considered. A new interpretation of the components of the tensors as projections onto an orthogonal tensor basis is given. It is shown that the constitutive relations can be written in the form of six functions each of...

    In this article, we define stochastic dynamics for a system coupled to reservoirs. The rules for forward and backward transitions are related by a generalized detailed balance identity involving the system and its reservoirs. We compare the variation of information and of entropy. We define the...

    The Simon effect refers to the performance (response time and accuracy) advantage for responses that spatially correspond to the task-irrelevant location of a stimulus. It has been attributed to a natural tendency to respond toward the source of stimulation. When location is task-relevant,...

    The strain energy stored in mechanically milled 5083 Al powders was investigated using two experimental approaches: thermal and microstructural analysis. The experimental results show that mechanically milled 5083 Al powders store strain energy on the order of a few tens of joules per gram....
