Such ensembles of waves are known, for example, for the KdV solitons [75] and for the Schrodinger solitons [76]; the interaction of fields may also result in ensembles of waves like in thermoelasticity [77].
In 1938, Greninger and Mooradian demonstrated thermoelasticity in Cu-Zn, during their investigation of brass alloys (copper-zinc and copper-tin) [3].
By a solution of the mixed initial-boundary value problem for the thermoelasticity of micropolar bodies with voids, in the cylinder [[OMEGA].
In the equations of motion (1), the stress tensor satisfies the constitutive equations of thermoelasticity known as Duhamel-Neumann relations:
For finding the [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], stress state we solve the thermoelasticity problem for an continuous plane.
Part II consists of advanced topics that can constitute a second course or be selectively incorporated with the material of part I, including complex variable methods, anisotropy, thermoelasticity, displacement potentials and stress functions in three dimensional problems, nonhomogeneity, micromechanics, and numerical methods.
The field equations in a homogeneous and isotropic elastic medium in the context of generalized theories of thermoelasticity, without body forces and heat sources, are given by Lord and Shulman [26] and Green and Lindsay [27] as
Finally, it is also possible to use the same approach for deriving the governing equations for the thermoelasticity where the microtemperature (temperature fluctuation due to microstructure) is taken into account [22,23].
Owing to the nature of uncoupled static thermoelasticity, Young's modulus should be taken as a new fundamental dimension, since Newton's second law is not used here, and hence Force and Mass should be regarded as having independent dimensions.
