abstract = {The work [3] of axiomatization of various classical theories on continuous bodies from the Mach-Painlevè point of view, is completed here in a way which -unlike [4]- is suitable for extension to special relativity. The main reason of this is the fact that gravitation can be excluded in all the theories on continuous bodies considered here. Following [1], the notion of (physical) equivalence among affine inertial frames, and that of (physical isotropy of these frames are introduced; it is shown that the isotropic inertial frames equivalent to a fixed frame of this kind are those linked to this frame by a (proper) Galilean transformation. As in Part 1, the Euclidean physical metric on inertial spaces is consequently determined, without introducing it as a primitive notion. The treatment of Part 2 is referred to thermodynamic theories for continuous bodies and, as a particular case, to purely mechanic theories. In this last case, the primitive concepts are only the purely kinematical ones, presented in [3].},
