Technical Paper


In this article, propagation of plane waves in generalized microstretch homogeneous isotropic thermoelastic half-space is considered. The elastic modulus is considered as a function having linear relation with the initial temperature. The normal mode method is used to fine exact expression for field variables. The results predicted by both types of Green and Naghdi theory under the presence and absence of magnetic and gravitational field are presented graphically. Influence of temperature-dependent elastic constants is also considered on field variables.
