Wave Propagation in a Rotating Transversely Isotropic Two-Temperature Generalized Thermoelastic Medium Without Dissipation



The present paper is concerned with the propagation of plane waves in a rotating, transversely isotropic, two-temperature generalized thermoelastic solid half-space without energy dissipation. The governing equations are solved to show the existence of three plane waves in the \(x{-}z\) plane. The reflection of these plane waves from a thermally insulated free surface is also studied to obtain a system of three non-homogeneous equations in reflection coefficients of the reflected waves. The speeds and reflection coefficients are computed for a particular model of the half-space. The speeds and reflection coefficients of plane waves are shown graphically to observe the effects of anisotropy, two temperatures and rotation.
