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 coupled thermoelasticity of shells of revolution, based on second-order shell theory, is considered, and the governing equations including normal stress and strain as well as the transverse shear and rotary inertia are considered. The coupled energy equation based on the assumption of Lord and Shulman (Lord, H. W., and Shulman, Y., "A Generalized Dynamical Theory of Thermoelasticity,'' Journal of Mechanics and Physics of Solids, Vol. 15, No. 5, 1967, pp. 299-309) is further considered, and the total system of equations is served by means of Galerkin finite element method. it is concluded that the inclusion of normal stress in the coupled equation is significant and for thin shells can result in a noticeable difference in shelf response compared to unassumed conditions.

    ABSTRACT: The problem of generalized magneto-thermoelastic diffusion in an infinite rotating nonhomogeneity medium subjected to certain boundary conditions is studied. The chemical potential is also assumed to be a known function of time at the boundary of the cavity. The analytical expressions for the displacements, stresses, temperature, concentration, and chemical potential are obtained. Comparison was made between the results obtained in the presence and absence of diffusion. The results indicate that the effect of nonhomogeneity, rotation, magnetic field, relaxation time, and diffusion is very pronounced.

    ABSTRACT: In the present work, the effects of initial stress, magnetic field and non-homogeneity on wave propagation of free harmonic waves in isotropic material are discussed. The one-dimensional equation of elastodynamic is solved in terms of radial displacement and different cases of the boundary conditions for the hollow cylinder are considered. The determination is concerned with the eigenvalues of the natural frequencies of the radial vibrations for different boundary conditions in the case of harmonic vibrations. Numerical results are given and illustrated graphically for each case considered. Comparisons are made with the results in the absence of initial stress, magnetic field and non-homogeneity.
