Thermodynamically Consistent Formulation of Induced Anisotropy in Polar Ice Accounting for Grain Rotation, Grain-size Evolution and Recrystallization.

Luca Placidi
In this thesis we present a general theory able to comprehend important phenomena related to the dynamics of a polycrystalline material such as the ice of an ice sheet. The theoretical framework is founded upon the Theory of Mixtures with Continuous Diversity, for which the second law of thermodynamics is exploited to get a complete set of restrictions on the constitutive equations. The main goal of such an exploitation is to provide a theoretical tool...
