Influence of microstructure on thermoelastic wave propagation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Computations of thermoelasticwave propagation inmicrostructured solids show that besides the usual diffusion of the macrotemperature in course of time, the wave-type behavior of temperature is observed. This is possible because of coupling effects between microtemperature, stress, and macrotemperature. The reason why the microtemperature is governed by a hyperbolic equation is based on the inclusion of time rates of internal variables into the modified heat flux. Although the observed effect of themicrostructure is small, it exists in the case of realistic values of material parameters.
