Abstract : Onsanger's principle of irreversible thermodynamics is applied to viscoelastic bodies subjected to finite deformation. The constitutive equation for small dynamic strains superposed on finite static deformation is used. The state of such deformation is considered as small deviations from an equilibrium reference state, the latter being that of equilibrium state of a material subjected to finite deformation in which the material is maintained for a long time.
