Abstract

In the theories about the rheological behaviour of materials their actual state is to represented by a model. Such a model may be considered an image of the system, simplified in such a way that it is tractable for mathematical analysis and still representing the features of the system that are expected to be important for its rheological behaviour. The development of models may be viewed as a process in which some kind of balance between physical reality, mathematical simplicity and usefulness is optimized. In the present paper a thermodynamic approach is given which may be applied to many type of models in a unified and systematic way.
