In the present paper we consider a prismatic cylinder occupied by an anisotropic and homogeneous compressible linear thermoelastic material within the framework of the linear theory of thermoelasticity without energy dissipation. The cylinder is subject to zero body force and heat supply and zero lateral specific boundary conditions and the motion is induced by a time-dependent displacement and thermal displacement specified pointwise over the base. Further, the motion is constrained such that the displacement, thermal displacement, velocity and temperature variation at points in the cylinder and at a prescribed time are in given proportions to, but not identical with, their respective initial values. It is shown that certain integrals of the solution spatially evolve with respect to the axial variable. Conditions are derived that show the integrals exhibit alternative behavior and in particular for the semi-infinite cylinder that there is either at least exponential growth or at most exponential decay, provided the elasticity tensor is positive definite or strongly elliptic.

Abstract

In the present paper we consider a prismatic cylinder occupied by an anisotropic and homogeneous compressible linear thermoelastic material within the framework of the linear theory of thermoelasticity without energy dissipation. The cylinder is subject to zero body force and heat supply and zero lateral specific boundary conditions and the motion is induced by a time-dependent displacement and thermal displacement specified pointwise over the base. Further, the motion is constrained such that the displacement, thermal displacement, velocity and temperature variation at points in the cylinder and at a prescribed time are in given proportions to, but not identical with, their respective initial values. It is shown that certain integrals of the solution spatially evolve with respect to the axial variable. Conditions are derived that show the integrals exhibit alternative behavior and in particular for the semi-infinite cylinder that there is either at least exponential growth or at most exponential decay, provided the elasticity tensor is positive definite or strongly elliptic.
