Abstract : A detailed development of nonlinear thermodynamical theories of rods and shells is discussed using the three dimensional theory of classical continuum mechanics as a starting point. A portion of the paper supplements and amplifies the previous work on the subject by Green, Laws and Naghdi. Special attention is given to non-isothermal linear theories of elastic shells and straight elastic rods which are derived from the three dimensional equations. (Author)
