Effect of Rotation to a Half-Sapce in Magneto-Thermoelasticity with Thermal Relaxations


Article Preview

Based on Green and Lindsay’s generalized thermoelasticity theory with two relaxation times, a two-dimensional coupled problem in electromagneto-thermoelasticity for a rotating half-space solid whose surface is subjected to a heat is studied in this paper. The normal mode analysis is used to obtain the analytical expressions for the considered variables. It can be found electromagneto-thermoelastic coupled effect in the medium, and it also can be found that rotation acts to significantly decrease the magnitude of the real part of displacement and stress and insignificantly affect the magnitude of temperature and induced magnetic field.
