When dissipative fluxes are added as independent variables into the entropy, the equations of state become dependent on the fluxes and are accordingly modified. Such a modification may have observable consequences on thermal waves propagating in a nonequilibrium reference state. Here, the equation of state for a generalized absolute temperature under a heat flux and some of its consequences are examined from several points of view. © 1989 Akadémiai Kiadó.
