This work is devoted to the development of a theoretical approach for the calculation of entropy in metals under plastic deformation. The thermodynamic analysis of the plastic deformation process allowed us to obtain the expression for determination of the entropy production. The value of the entropy production in an Armco iron specimen under plastic deformation as calculated the basis of the proposed technique and infrared thermography data. This method also lets us define the inelastic strain caused by the initiation and growth of the defects which was used as the internal variable in the considered thermomechanical model from the experimental data. In order to verify the obtained results a theoretical analysis of the modeled situation was carried out. View Full-Text
