Abstract

The standard basic laws of mechanics imply the existence of elastic energy circulations associated with the internal forces and stresses in a body at rest in a moving System, even when the motion of the system is uniform and inertial, whereas no such energy circulations occur in an identical body at absolute rest. The elastic transmission of energy is attended with the emission of heat. Thus, in the case of a System in a uniform inertial motion an observer would notice an emission of heat from a stressed body at rest in the System, whereas no such emission of heat would be observed in an identical situation in a System at absolute rest. This must refute the Principle of Relativity.
