The inclusion of dissipative fluxes in the set of independent thermodynamic variables leads, among other features, to a modification of the equations of state. Here, we introduce into the van der Waals equation the generalized pressure obtained in extended irreversible thermodynamics and analyze the influence of a shear stress or a heat flux on the critical point of a fluid. © 1983 The American Physical Society.
