Abstract

We present the state of the art on the modern mathematical methods of exploiting the entropy principle in thermomechanics of continuous media. A survey of recent results and conceptual discussions of this topic in some well-known non-equilibrium theories (Classical irreversible thermodynamics CIT, Rational thermodynamics RT, Thermodynamics of irreversible processes TIP, Extended irreversible thermodynamics EIT, Rational Extended thermodynamics RET) is also summarized.
Keywords: continuum thermodynamics; entropy principle; rational thermodynamics; classical irreversible thermodynamics; extended irreversible thermodynamics; rational extended thermodynamics; exploitation of second law continuum thermodynamics; entropy principle; rational thermodynamics; classical irreversible thermodynamics; extended irreversible thermodynamics; rational extended thermodynamics; exploitation of second law
