Abstract: In the present paper we study the homogenization of the system of partial differential equations

This sequence of one-dimensional systems is a model for the homogenization of nonhomogeneous, stratified, thermoviscoplastic materials exhibiting thermal softening and a temperature-dependent rate of plastic work converted into heat.

Under the above hypotheses we prove that this system is stable by homogenization. More precisely one can extract a subsequence for which the velocity and the temperature converge to some homogenized velocity and some homogenized temperature which solve a system similar to the system solved by and , for coefficients , and which satisfy hypotheses similar to the hypotheses satisfied by , and . These homogenized coefficients , and are given by some explicit (even if sophisticated) formulas. In particular, the homogenized heat coefficient in general depends on the temperature even if the heterogeneous heat coefficients do not depend on it.
