This paper summarizes the results of some recent investigations on the continuum mechanical modeling of thermo-elastic phase transitions in solids carried out jointly with J. K. Knowles . Our most recent efforts have been focussed on the role of a kinetic law and an initiation criterion in modeling dynamic phase transitions, and their relationship to theories that include viscosity and strain-gradient effects.
