Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this work, we will introduce a general framework to derive the thermodynamics of a fluid mechanical system, which guarantees the consistence between the energetic variational approaches with the laws of thermodynamics. In particular, we will focus on the coupling between the thermal and mechanical forces. We follow the framework for a classical gas with ideal gas equilibrium and present the existences of weak solutions to this thermodynamic system coupled with the Brinkman-type equation to govern the velocity field.
