Title: Analysis of the equations governing the motion of a degrading elastic solid due to diffusion of a fluid
Authors: Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón; Rajagopal, Kumbakonam
Abstract: Degradation of solids bearing load due to the infusion of moisture when exposed to the environment
can leads to a decrease in their load carrying capacity and can also lead to the failure of the body from
performing its intended task. In this short paper, we study some qualitative properties of the solution
to systems of equations that describe the degradation in a linearized elastic solid due to the diffusion
of a fluid. The model that is considered allows for the material properties of the solid to depend on the
concentration of the diffusing fluid. While the load carrying capacity of a solid could decrease or increase
due to the infusion of a fluid, we consider the case when degradation takes place. We are able to obtain
results concerning the uniqueness of solutions to the problem under consideration. We also consider
special anti-plane and quasi-static deformations of the body.

Title: On a theory of thermoelastic materials with double porosity structure
Authors: Iesan, Dorin; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón
Abstract: In this article, we use the Nunziato–Cowin theory of materials with voids to derive a theory of thermoelastic solids, which have a double porosity structure. The new theory is not based on Darcy's law. In the case of equilibrium, in contrast with the classical theory of elastic materials with double porosity, the porosity structure of the body is influenced by the displacement field. We prove the uniqueness of solutions by means of the logarithmic convexity arguments as well as the instability of solutions whenever the internal energy is not positive definite. Later, we use semigroup arguments to prove the existence of solutions in the case that the internal energy is positive. The deformation of an elastic space with a spherical cavity is investigated.

Title: On the backward in time problem for the thermoelasticity with two temperatures
Authors: Leseduarte Milán, María Carme; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón
Abstract: This paper is devoted to the study of the existence, uniqueness, continuous dependence and spatial behaviour of the solutions for the backward in time problem determined by the Type III with two temperatures thermoelastodynamic theory. We first show the existence, uniqueness and continuous dependence of the solutions. Instability of the solutions for the Type II with two temperatures theory is proved later. For the one-dimensional Type III with two temperatures theory, the exponential instability is also pointed-out. We also analyze the spatial behaviour of the solutions. By means of the exponentially weighted Poincare inequality, we are able to obtain a function that defines a measure on the solutions and, therefore, we obtain the usual exponential type alternative for the solutions of the problem defined in a semi-infinite cylinder.

Title: On the uniqueness and analyticity of solutions in micropolar thermoviscoelasticity
Authors: Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón
Abstract: This paper deals with the linear theory of isotropic micropolar thermoviscoelastic materials. When the dissipation is positive definite, we present two uniqueness theorems. The first one requires the extra assumption that some coupling terms vanish; in this case, the instability of solutions is also proved. When the internal energy and the dissipation are both positive definite, we prove the well-posedness of the problem and the analyticity of the solutions. Exponential decay and impossibility of localization are corollaries of the analyticity.2014-02-10T14:06:59ZOn the spatial behavior in type III thermoelastodynamics

Title: On the spatial behavior in type III thermoelastodynamics
Authors: Leseduarte Milán, María Carme; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón
Abstract: This note is concerned with the linear (and linearized) Type III thermoelastodynamic theory proposed by Green and Naghdi. We investigate the spatial behavior of the solutions when we assume the positivity of the elasticity tensor, the thermal conductivity tensor, the mass density and the heat capacity. However, we do not assume (a priori) the positivity of the internal energy. We first obtain a Phragmén-Lindelöf alternative of exponential type for the solutions. Later, we prove that the decay can be controlled by the exponential of a second-degree polynomial. This is similar to other thermoelastic situations.2014-02-04T16:20:58ZSpatial decay for several phase-field models

Abstract: In this paper, we study the spatial behavior of three phase-field models. First, we consider the Cahn-Hilliard equation and
we obtain the exponential decay of solutions under suitable assumptions on the data. Then, for the classical isothermal
phase-field equation (i.e., the Allen-Cahn equation), we prove the nonexistence and the fast decay of solutions and, for
the nonisothermal case governed by the Fourier law, we obtain a Phragm ́
en-Lindel ̈

respectively.2013-12-05T15:30:33ZDecay of solutions for a mixture of thermoelastic one dimensional solids

Title: Decay of solutions for a mixture of thermoelastic one dimensional solids
Authors: Muñoz Rivera, Jaime E.; Naso, Maria-Grazia; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón
Abstract: We study a PDE system modeling thermomechanical deformations for a mixture of thermoelastic solids. In particular we investigate the asymptotic behavior of the solutions. First, we identify conditions on the constitutive coefficients to guarantee that the imaginary axis is contained in the resolvent. Subsequently, we find the necessary and sufficient conditions to guarantee the exponential decay of solutions. When the decay is not of exponential type, we prove that the solutions decay polynomially and we find the optimal polynomial decay rate.2013-06-17T16:52:48ZOn the decay of solutions for the heat conduction with two temperatures

Title: On the decay of solutions for the heat conduction with two temperatures
Authors: Leseduarte Milán, María Carme; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón
Abstract: This paper is devoted to the study of the asymptotic behavior of the solutions of the system of
equations that models the heat conduction with two temperatures. That is, we consider a mixture of isotropic
and homogeneous rigid solids. We analyze the static problem in a semi-infinite cylinder where every material
point has two temperatures with nonlinear boundary conditions on the lateral side. A Phragmén–Lindelöf
alternative for the solutions is obtained by means of energy arguments. Estimates for the decay and growth of
the solutions are presented. We also prove that the only solution vanishing in the exterior of a bounded set is
the null solution for a particular subfamily of problems. Cone-like domains are considered in the last section,
and we obtain decay estimates for the solutions when the total energy is bounded.2013-04-11T15:01:18ZOn the logarithmic convexity in thermoelastiscity with microtemperatures

Abstract: This article is concerned with the linear theory of thermoelasticity with
microtemperatures. In a recent article we have used the logarithmic convexity method
to investigate uniqueness, instability and structural stability. The results are restricted
to the case when the constitutive coefficients
k1 and k3 have the same signs. Here we
prove that these results also hold when the coefficients k1 and k3 have opposite signs.2013-04-11T13:01:01ZOn a strain gradient theory of thermoviscoelasticity

Title: On a strain gradient theory of thermoviscoelasticity
Authors: Iesan, Dorin; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón
Abstract: This paper is concerned with a strain gradient theory of thermoviscoelasticity in which the time derivatives of the strain tensors are included in the set of independent constitutive variables. The theory is motivated by the recent interest in the study of gradient theories. First, we establish the basic equations of the linear theory and present two uniqueness results. Then, we use a semigroup approach to derive an existence result. Finally, we establish the constitutive equations for an isotropic chiral material and derive a solution of the field equations.2013-01-09T18:14:58ZA conserved phase-field system based on the Maxwell–Cattaneo law

Title: Non-linear deformations of porous elastic solids
Authors: Iesan, Dorin; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón
Abstract: This paper is concerned with the non-linear theory of porouselastic bodies. First, we present the basic equations in general curvilinear coordinates. The constitutive equations for porouselastic bodies with incompressible matrix material are derived. Then, the equilibrium theory is investigated. An existence result within the one-dimensional theory is presented. The theory is applied in order to study the torsion of an isotropic circular cylinder and the flexure of a cuboid made of an anisotropic material. It is shown that the equations of equilibrium reduce to a single ordinary differential equation governing an unknown function which characterizes the aforementioned deformations.2012-11-06T16:00:27ZPhragmén-Lindelöf alternative for an exact heat conduction equation with delay

Title: Phragmén-Lindelöf alternative for an exact heat conduction equation with delay

Abstract: In this paper we investigate the spatial behavior of the solutions for
a theory for the heat conduction with one delay term. We obtain a Phragm én-
Lindelöf type alternative. That is, the solutions either decay in an exponential
way or blow-up at in nity in an exponential way. We also show how to obtain
an upper bound for the amplitude term. Later we point out how to extend
the results to a thermoelastic problem. We nish the paper by considering
the equation obtained by the Taylor approximation to the delay term. A
Phragm én-Lindelöf type alternative is obtained for the forward and backward
in time equations.2012-10-11T14:06:43ZOn uniqueness and continuous dependence in type III thermoelasticity

Abstract: In this paper, we extend the earlier work by Quintanilla and Rajagopal (Math Methods Appl Sci 29: 2133–2147,
2006) and establish qualitative new results for a proper generalization of Burgers’ original work that stems form a general
thermodynamic framework. Such fluids have been used to describe the behavior of several geological materials such as
asphalt and the earth’s mantle as well as polymeric fluids. We study questions concerning stability, uniqueness and continuous
dependence on initial data for the solutions of the flows of these fluids. We show that if certain conditions are not
satisfied by the material moduli, the solutions could be unstable. The spatial behavior of the solutions is also analyzed.2012-06-15T18:08:32Z
