Starting from the extended irreversible thermodynamics (EIT) theory, some corrections to the specific heat and to the thermal compressibility of a nonequilibrium system are obtained. We study the subsequent modifications of the static stability conditions of a system under shear. In some situations, a shear-induced melting transition can be present. © 1983.
