Integral transform methods applied to a dynamic problem in thermo-elasticity

  • 26 Accesses


The effects of thermoelastic coupling on the distribution of displacement, temperature and stress in an infinite elastic medium due to the presence of thermal and mechanical sources have been investigated. In the case of instantaneous sources, it is found that the effect is very much pronounced that the coupling constant cannot be assumed to be small in inverting the transform solutions.
