Abstract

We use the compact harmonic general solutions of transversely isotropic thermoelastic materials to construct the three-dimensional fundamental solutions for a steady point heat source in an infinite transversely isotropic thermoelastic material and a steady point heat source on the surface of a semi-infinite transversely isotropic thermoelastic material by three newly introduced harmonic functions, respectively. All components of coupled field are expressed in terms of elementary functions and are convenient to use. Numerical results for hexagonal zinc are given graphically by contours. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd.
