On boundary conditions for a certain class of problems in mixture theory Academic Article uri icon


  • An additional boundary condition is proposed for solid-fluid mixtures for the situation in which a mixture boundary is in a saturated state. This condition on the boundary is derived from a thermodynamic characterization of the state and takes the form of a relationship between the total stress tensor, the stretch tensor and the volume fraction of the solid. This additional condition is sufficient to make several boundary value problems involving mixtures, determinate. © 1986.
