Coherent phase transformation
Springer Online Journal Archives 1860-2000
Abstract It is shown that in diffusionless coherent first-order phase transformations in stressed solids an energy-momentum tensor appears in the role of a chemical potential. A thermodynamic equilibrium condition is derived in terms of this tensor from balance relations and a dissipation inequality, and its use in formulating linear phenomenological relations for irreversible phase transformations in nonhydrostatic systems is pointed out.
