In the context of Lord and Shulman theory, the generalized thermoelastic theory with thermal relaxation is used to investigate the thermoelastic interaction in an infinite fibre-reinforced anisotropic plate containing a circular hole. Thermoelastic interactions are caused by a uniform: step at temperature applied to the boundary of the hole which is stress-free. The problem is solved numerically using a finite element method and the numerical solutions of the non-dimensional governing partial differential equations of the problem are shown graphically. The effects of the presence and absence reinforcement on temperature, stress and displacement are studied. |
