Controllable states of elastic heat conductors obeying a fourier law
Exact solutions to the equations of general thermoelasticity are derived for a class of homogeneous, isotropic, incompressible materials characterized by a quite general temperature-dependent free energy function and three material constants governing heat-flux response. Various combinations of inflation, torsion, extension, and shearing deformations of annular wedges are found to be controllable when coupled with certain radial or axial temperature gradients. A precise list of the controllable states is given in section 9. © 1975.
