Modelling of magneto-thermoelastic plane waves at the interface of two prestressed solid half-spaces without energy dissipation
Rajneesh Kakar and Shikha Kakar

 
Abstract
    A model for reflection and refraction of magneto-thermoelastic SV-waves at the interface of two transversely isotropic and homogeneous solid half spaces under initial stress by applying classical dynamical theory of thermoelasticity is purposed. The reflection and refraction coefficients of SV-waves are obtained with ideal boundary conditions for SV-wave incident on the solid-solid interface. The effects of magnetic field, temperature and initial stress on the amplitude ratios after numerical computations are shown graphically with MATLAB software for the particular model.
 
Key Words
