Abstract

In the present paper, the problem of reflection and transmission of waves at an interface of elastic and microstretch thermoelastic solids with microtemperatureshas been studied. The amplitude ratios of various reflected and transmitted waves are functions of angle of incidence and frequency of incident wave. The expressions of amplitude ratios have been computed numerically for a particular model. The variations of amplitude ratios with angle of incidence are shown graphically to depict the effect of microrotation. Some particular cases of interest have been also deduced.
