On Rayleigh Wave in Two-Temperature Generalized Thermoelastic Medium without Energy Dissipation
ABSTRACT

In this paper, Rayleigh surface wave is studied at a stress free thermally insulated surface of a two-temperature thermoelastic solid half-space in absence of energy dissipation. The governing equations of two-temperature generalized thermoelastic medium without energy dissipation are solved for surface wave solutions. The appropriate particular solutions are applied to the required boundary conditions to obtain the frequency equation of the Rayleigh wave. Some special cases are also derived. The non-dimensional speed is computed numerically and shown graphically to show the dependence on the frequency and two-temperature parameter.
