This contribution reports on an ongoing research project aimed in developing a unified theoretical framework for the description of interconnected thermo-mechanical systems with a particular emphasis on thermodynamic engines. We analyse from the geometrical viewpoint the structure of thermodynamic and mechanical interconnection and propose an approach to the unified description of thermo-mechanical systems. The theoretical results are illustrated by a physical example. (C) 2017, IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control) Hosting by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
