## Abstract

This chapter is given over to an investigation of the effect of thermomechanical coupling in isolation from the effect of inertia. To this end we make the . In the light of the boundary conditions (1.1.3) the strain and if we integrate (2.1.1) with respect to . When we differentiate with respect to

*coupled and quasi-static approximation*which entails that the coupling constant*a*be positive while the inertial constant*b*is set equal to zero. Thus, we retain the first of the thermoelastic equations (1.1.1) but replace (1.1.2) by the approximate equation$$ \frac{{{\partial^2}u}}{{\partial {x^2}}} = \sqrt a \cdot \frac{{\partial \theta }}{{\partial x}}. $$

(2.1.1)

*∂u/∂x*must satisfy the condition$$ \int_0^1 {\frac{{\partial u}}{{\partial x}}dx = 0} $$

*x*and appeal to this condition we can express the strain in terms of the temperature by way of the equation$$ \frac{{\partial u}}{{\partial x}}(x,t) = \sqrt a \cdot \theta (x,t) = \sqrt a \cdot \int_0^1 {\theta (y,t)dy.} $$

(2.1.2)

*t*and substitute for the strain rate in (1.1.1) we conclude that the temperature is a solution of the equation.$$ \frac{{{\partial^2}\theta }}{{\partial {x^2}}}(x,t) = (1 + a)\frac{{\partial \theta }}{{\partial t}}(x,t) - a\frac{d}{{dt}}\int_0^1 {\theta (y,t)dy.} $$
