Thermo-visco-elasticity for models with growth conditions in Orlicz spaces

Filip Klawe



We study a quasi-static evolution of the thermo-visco-elastic model. We act with external forces on a non-homogeneous material body, which is a subject of our research. Such action may cause deformation of this body and may change its temperature. Mechanical part of the model contains two kinds of deformation: elastic and visco-elastic. The mechanical deformation is coupled with temperature and both of them may influence each other. Since the constitutive function on evolution of the visco-elastic deformation depends on temperature, the visco-elastic properties of material also depend on temperature. We consider the thermodynamically complete model related to a hardening rule with growth condition in generalized Orlicz spaces. We provide the proof of existence of solutions for such class of models.
