Abstract

In extended thermodynamic the entropy principle and the Galilean invariance dictate respectively constraints for the constitutive equations and the velocity dependence. The entropy principle in particular requires the existence of a privileged field, the main field u', such that the original system becomes symmetric hyperbolic and is generated by four potentials. It is not easy to solve the restrictions of both principles, if we use as field the non convective main field û' and the velocity v. This is due to the fact that û' are not independent. Rather its components satisfy three scalar constraints. The aim of this paper is to solve the full problem using as new strategy to consider û' as independent variables and requiring an appropriate differential constraint. This new procedure is very efficient and we are able to solve the problem of 13 moments in the full non linear case (far from equilibrium). It turns out that the knowledge of only the equilibrium state function is sufficient to close the system.
