Dynamics of propagating phase boundaries: Thermoelastic solids with heat conduction
This paper is concerned with the incorporation of thermal effects into the continuum modeling of dynamic solid-solid phase transitions. The medium is modeled as a one-dimensional thermoelastic solid characterized by a specific Helmholtz free-energy potential and a specific kinetic relation. Heat conduction and inertia are taken into account. An initial-value problem that gives rise to both shock waves and a propagating phase boundary is analyzed on the basis of this model.
