12) es stands for the specific internal energy of the matrix (or equivalently the intrinsic specific energy of the skeleton). Accordingly the left hand term accounts for the time rate of the energy attached to the whole matter currently contained within the volume t , including its kinetic form. 3), while Q accounts for the rate of heat externally supplied. 13) t where JQ is the surface rate of heat supplied by conduction. This heat supply is due to contact effects and therefore, as it concerns space, depends only on the position vector x and on the outward unit normal n to surface da.

1 Strain Work Rates The strain work rate associated with a velocity field V is the sum of the work rates developed in this field, both by body and surface forces and by inertia forces, the latter being the opposite of the dynamic forces. 6) this sum is zero for a velocity field related to any rigid body motion of the material domain, which assigns the same velocities to the skeleton and to the fluid. Accordingly, let V be any velocity field, but let it be the same for the skeleton and the fluid. 39) 28 MOMENTUM BALANCE.
