Abstract : The final report summarizes the research efforts on stability and thermal influences in nonlinear continuum mechanics and material science. Research on phase transitions included solid-solid phase transitions in deformable continua, evolution of interfacial curves and generalized Stefen problems. Studies were also made of general continuum mechanics.
