Effect Of Distinct Conductive And Thermodynamic Temperatures On The Reflection Of Plane Waves In Micropolar Elastic Half-Space
The present investigation is concerned with wave propagation in micropolar thermoelastic solid half space with distinct conductive and thermodynamic temperatures. Reflection of plane waves incident obliquely at the free surface of micropolar generalized thermoelastic solid half space with two temperature is investigated. Amplitude ratios various reflected waves are obtained in closed form and it is found that these are function of angle of incidence, frequency and are affected by the micropolar thermoelastic properties of the medium. Effect of two temperatures is shown on these amplitude ratios for a specific model. Results of some earlier workers have also been deduced from the present investigation as a special case.
