Abstract

This paper is concerned with a thermomechanical model describing phase separation phenomena in terms of the entropy balance and equilibrium equations for the microforces. The related system is highly nonlinear and admits singular potentials in the phase equation. Both the viscous and the non-viscous cases are considered in the Cahn–Hilliard relations characterizing the phase dynamics. The entropy balance is written in terms of the absolute temperature and of its logarithm, appearing under time derivative. The initial and boundary value problem is considered for the system of partial differential equations. The existence of a global solution is proved via some approximations involving Yosida regularizations and a suitable time discretization.
