Abstract
The mechanical behavior of a mixture composed by an elastic solid
and a fluid that exchange mass is investigated. Both the liquid flow and
the solid deformation depend on how the solid phase has increased (di-
minished) its mass, i.e. on the mass conversion between constituents.
The model is developed introducing a decomposition of the solid phase
deformation gradient. In particular, exploiting the criterion of maximiza-
tion of the rate of dissipation, we determine an explicit evolution equation
