  • GENERIC, bulk-interface interaction, dissipative solids




The modeling framework of GENERIC was originally introduced by Grmela and Öttinger for thermodynamically closed systems. It is phrased with the aid of the energy and entropy as driving functionals for reversible and dissipative processes and suitable geometric structures. Based on the definition functional derivatives we propose a GENERIC framework for systems with bulk-interface interaction and apply it to discuss the GENERIC structure of models for delamination processes.
