Clausius–Duhem inequality print that page

The Clausius–Duhem Duhem inequality [ 1 ] [ 2 ] is a way of expressing the second law of thermodynamics that is used in continuum mechanics . This inequality is particularly useful in determining whether the constitutive relation of a material is thermodynamically allowable. [ 3 ] This

Clausius–Clapeyron relation print that page

The Clausius–Clapeyron relation , named after Rudolf Clausius and Benoît Paul Émile Clapeyron , who defined it sometime after 1834, is a way of characterizing a discontinuous phase transition between two phases of matter. On a pressure – temperature (P–T) diagram, the line separating
