Entransy is a function recently introduced in thermodynamics. This function is analyzed critically in relation to the classical thermodynamic approach in order to understand its physical fundamentals. The crucial problem is that thermodynamic analysis shows that entransy does not contain any new information in comparison with a classical thermodynamic analysis of systems. Furthermore, entransy dissipation analysis is a duplicate of entropy generation analysis.

    We formulate the basic relations of a mathematical model of mechanics of elastic deformable systems that describes the formation of a near-surface inhomogeneity caused by both the process of local mass displacement and dissipative processes. On this basis, we solve the problem of the stationary...
