Surface Displacements under Harmonic Concentration

  • Elizabeth Mathai Bangalore University, Bangalore
Keywords: Thermodiffusive elastic half space


Expressions are obtained for the surface displacements over a thermodiffusive elastic half space in which the concentration is assumed to be a harmonic function. As expected, these expressions are found to be extensions of the classical results. Some special cases are also included and various simpler expressions for the displacements are obtained, with plausible applications to defence science.
