Thermoelasticity with Finite Wave Speeds

Józef Ignaczak and Martin Ostoja-Starzewski

Oxford Mathematical Monographs

  • Expounds the dynamic thermoelasticity governed by hyperbolic equations
  • Extensively covers the mathematics of two leading theories of hyperbolic thermoelasticity: the Lord-Shulman (or one relaxation time) theory, and the Green-Lindsay (or two relaxation times) theory
  • In-depth coverage of: thermoelastic polynomials, existence and uniqueness theorems, variational principles, central equation of hyperbolic thermoelasticity, solution methods for periodic and aperiodic cases, and moving discontinuity surfaces
  • Makes connections to several other generalized thermoelasticity theories and models, including the nonlinear hyperbolic rigid heat conductor of the Coleman type
  • Reviews several applications of hyperbolic thermoelasticity, such as thermoelastic damping, chiral and fractal materials, and surface waves
  • Extensive bibliography
