Propagation of Second-Order Thermomechanical Disturbances in Viscoelastic Solids
The change of magnitude of a strain discontinuity is studied as it propagates in a heat conducting viscoelastic medium. The paper includes an investigation of the effects of thermomechanical coupling, viscous flow, second-order strains, and temperature-dependent material properties.
