A quest for on 'extended' continuum mechanics


Earlier re ections on balance equations possibly appropriate for hyper uids or pseudo uids (re ections broached originally so as to dispose of lack of strict objectivity in standard thermal quantities) are instanced again with a different slant. It is alleged that partially chaotic motions can be efficiently branded by assigning pertinent averages, moments and variances and these gauges can be all (not only the first two) considered mechanical; hence the qualifier ‘extended’. A few immediate consequences of the approach are derived, open problems are listed, connections or dissensions with widely acknowledged notions are discussed.
