It is observed that porosity enters the megascopic description of the motion as a dynamic variable and the relationship between porosity and the average strains of the component materials can only be specified in the context of a specific physical process. This dynamic role for porosity is independent of temperature and thus theories of poromechanics and porodynamics are observed which are analogous to thermomechanics and thermodynamics.
