Title: The configurational and standard force balances are not always statements of a single law
Author(s): Fried, Eliot
Subject(s): constitutive theory smart materials experimental fluid mechanics granular materials particulate flows phase transitions biological mechanics
Abstract: By studying the asympototic connection between phase-field and sharp-interface theories for transitions between two phases distinguished only by their constant free-energy densities, we show that the configurational force balance of the sharpinterface theory is completely unrelated to standard force balance. This demonstrates the fallacy of a recently asserted view that the balances for configurational and standard forces are never independent.
