Plane waves at the boundary of two micropolar thermoelastic solids with distinct conductive and thermodynamic temperatures

Vol. 9 (2014), No. 2, 121–148

The present investigation is concerned with wave propagation at an interface of two different micropolar thermoelastic solid half-spaces with distinct conductive and thermodynamic temperatures. Reflection and transmission phenomena of plane waves impinging obliquely at a plane interface between two different micropolar thermoelastic solid half-spaces with two temperatures are investigated. The incident wave is assumed to be striking at the plane interface after propagating through one of the micropolar generalized thermoelastic solids with two temperatures. Amplitude ratios of the various reflected and transmitted waves are obtained in closed form and it is found that these are functions of the angle of incidence and frequency, and are affected by the elastic properties of the media. Micropolarity and two-temperature effects are shown on these amplitude ratios for a specific model. Results of some earlier workers have also been deduced from the present investigation.
