Abstract

This paper concentrates on the reflection of plane waves in the mixture of generalized thermo elastic solid half-space. There exists quasi dilatational waves i.e. qP1, qP2, qT and two rotational waves S1, S2 in a two dimensional model of the solid. The boundary conditions are solved to obtain a system of five non-homogeneous equations for amplitude ratios. These amplitude ratios are found to depend on the angle of incidence of incident wave, mixture and thermal parameters and have been computed numerically and presented graphically. The appreciable effects of mixtures and thermal on the amplitude ratios are obtained.
