Reflection and Refraction of Longitudinal Displacement Wave at Interface between Two Micropolar Elastic Solid
Using the model of generalized micropolar magneto-thermo-elasticity, reflection and refraction of longitudinal displacement wave at interface of two welded micropolar elastic media are studied. The model can be applied to the coupled theory as well as to five generalizations, such as L-S theory, G-L theory, H-I theory, G-N theory of type (II) and C-T theory. And if some parameters in this model are taken as given values, we can easily deduce the known models of Kelvin-Voigt model and other generalized micropolar/magneto/thermo/viscoelastic theory model. Using continuous conditions at the interface, the amplitude ratios of reflected and refracted micropolar magneto-thermoelastic longitudinal displacement waves, longitudinal microrotational waves and the coupled transverse and microrotational waves are studied for incident longitudinal displacement wave. The numerical results show that the effect of magnetic field is very significant on the amplitude ratios.
