  • Based on the non-equilibrium thermodynamic theory,a new thermo-viscoelastic constitutive model for an incompressible material is proposed.This model can be considered as a kind of generalization of the non-Gaussian network theory in rubber elasticity to include the viscous and the thermal effects.A set of second rank tensorial internal variables was introduced,and in order to adequately describe the evolution of these internal variables,a new expression of the Helmholtz free energy was suggested.The mechanical behavior of the thermo-viscoelastic material under simple shear deformation was studied,and the/viscous dissipation induced0 anisotropy due to the change of orientation distribution of molecular chains was examined.Influences of strain rate and thermal softening produced by the viscous dissipation on the shear stress were also discussed.Finally,the model predictions were compared with the experimental results performed by G.Sell et al,thus the validity of the proposed model is verified.
