An Analysis upon Solving Crack Problem in Generalized Thermoelasticity: General Solution | Original Article
The crack boundary is due to a prescribed temperature and stress distribution. By using the finite element method, the numerical solutions of the components of displacement, temperature and the stress components have been obtained. General solution for arbitrary heat flux along the crack face is obtained. For some particular cases, for example, the constant heat flux case and remote heat flux case, a closed form solution is obtained. The solution technique is effective in derivation and compact in form.
