# Strain gradient theory of porous solids with initial stresses and initial heat flux

• In this paper we present a strain gradient theory of thermoelastic porous solids with initial stresses and initial heat flux. First, we establish the equations governing the infinitesimal deformations superposed on large deformations. Then, we derive a linear theory of prestressed porous bodies with initial heat flux. The theory is capable to describe the deformation of chiral materials. A reciprocity relation and a uniqueness result with no definiteness assumption on the elastic constitutive coefficients are presented.
