Basic Theorems in Linear Micromorphic Thermoelectroelasticity and their Primary Application
As a natural extension of the micromorphic continuum theory, the linear theory of micromorphic thermoelectroelasticity is developed to characterize the nano-micro scale behavior of thermoelectroelastic materials with remarkable microstructures. After the basic governing equations are given and the reciprocal theorem is deduced, both the generalized variational principle and the generalized Hamilton principle for mixed boundary-initial value problems of micromorphic thermoelectroelastodynamics in convolution form are established. Finally, as a primary application, steady state responses of an unbounded homogeneous isotropic micromorphic thermoelectroelastic body to external concentrated loads with mechanical, electric, and thermal origins are analyzed.
