Abstract

The present investigation is concerned with the reflection of plane waves from a free surface of a micropolar thermoelastic diffusion half space in the context of coupled theory of thermoelastic diffusion. The amplitude ratios of various reflected waves are obtained in a closed form. The dependence of these amplitude ratios with an angle of propagation as well as other material parameter are shown graphically. Effects of micropolarity and diffusion are observed on these amplitude ratios. Some special cases of interest are also deduced from the present investigation.
