Based on the Lord and Shulman generalized thermo-elastic theory, the dynamic thermal and elastic responses of a piezoelectric rod fixed at both ends and subjected to a moving heat source are investigated. The generalized piezoelectric-thermoelastic coupled governing equations are formulated. By means of Laplace transformation and numerical Laplace inversion the governing equations are solved. Numerical calculation for stress, displacement and temperature within the rod is carried out and displayed graphically. The effect of moving heat source speed on temperature, stress and temperature is studied. It is found from the distributions that the temperature, thermally induced displacement and stress of the rod are found to decrease at large source speed.
