ABSTRACT In this paper, the radial deformation and the corresponding stresses in a homogeneous annular fin for an isotropic material
has been investigated. Anumerical technique is proposed to obtain the solution of the transient coupled thermoelasticity
in an annular fin cylinder with it’s base suddenly subject to a heat flux of a decayed exponential function of time. The system
of fundamental equations is solved by using an implicit finite-difference method. The present method is a second-order accurate
in time and space and unconditionally stable. Anumerical method is used to calculate the temperature, displacement and the
components of stresses with time t and through the radial of the annular fin cylinder. The results indicate that the effect of coupled thermoelasticity on temperature,
stresses and displacement is very pronounced. Comparison is made with the results predicted by the theory of thermoelasticity
in the absence of coupled thermoelasticity.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of the present paper is to study the influence of initial stress and magnetic field on the propagation of harmonic waves in a human long dry bone as transversely isotropic material, subject to the boundary conditions that the outer and inner surfaces are traction free. The equations of elastodynamics are solved in terms of displacements. The natural frequency of plane vibrations in the case of harmonic vibrations has been obtained. The frequencies and phase velocity are calculated numerically, the effects of initial stress and magnetic field are discussed. Comparisons are made with the result in the absence of initial stress and magnetic field.

    ABSTRACT: The effect of magnetic field and initial stress on plane wave propagation is discussed. We have investigated the problem of reflection and refraction of the thermoelastic wave at a magnetized solid-liquid interface in presence of initial stress. In the context of the CT-theory (Classical dynamical theory) of thermoelasticity, the problem has been solved. The boundary conditions at the interface for (i) displacement continuity, (ii) vanishing the tangential displacement, (iii) continuity of normal force per unit initial area, (iv) tangential force per unit initial area must vanish, and (v) continuity of temperature are applied. The amplitude ratios for the incident p- and T-waves have been obtained. The reflection and transmitted coefficients for the incident waves are computed numerically, considering the initial stress and magnetic field effect and presented graphically. Comparisons are made with the results in the absence and presence of initial stress and magnetic field. The results indicate that the effect of initial stress and magnetic field on wave propagation are very pronounced.

    ABSTRACT: The effect of magnetic field on the plane vibrations for an elastodynamic orthotropic sphere is studied. Equations of elastodynamic problems of the orthotropic hollow sphere in terms of displacement are solved. The numerical results of the frequency equations in the presence of magnetic field are discussed and shown graphically. Comparisons are made with the result in the presence and absence of magnetic field in the case of orthotropic sphere. The results show that the effect of magnetic field is very pronounced.
