Abstract : With the use of a suitable representation for the free energy, explicit forms of the constitutive relations, the dissipation function and related thermodynamical restrictions are derived for infinitesimal deformation of linear non-isothermal viscoelastic solids. Some remarks on further restrictions, consistent with the dissipation inequ1lity, are included for isotropic materials. (Author)
