Focusing on advanced methods and introducing important applications, this acknowledges the difficulty of moving discontinuities such as phase transition fronts or cracks. The authors (from Tallinn U. of Technology, Estonia and U. Pierre et Marie Curie, France) assert that the origin of these difficulties is a constitutive deficiency in the thermomechanical description of the corresponding irreversible processes. Leading to an uncertainty in jump relations at moving discontinuities. They aim to provide a framework for the description of moving discontinuities in solids and its implementation in a finite-volume numerical algorithm, and describe material inhomogeneities in thermodynamics, local phase equilibrium and jump relations at moving discontinuities, linear thermoelasticity, wave propagation in inhomogeneous solids, macroscopic dynamics of phase-transition fronts, two-dimensional elastic waves in inhomogeneous media, two-dimensional waves in functionally graded materials, phase transition fronts in two dimensions and the dynamics of a straight brittle crack.
