Green’s function for a multifield material with a heat source

Bogdan Rogowski
Green’s functions for a multifield material subjected to a point heat source are presented in an explicit analytical form. The study concerns the steady-state thermal loading infinite region, half-space region and two-constituent magneto-electro-thermo-elastic material region. The new mono-harmonic potential functions, obtained by the author, are used in the analysis. The elastic displacement, electric potential, magnetic potential and induced by those coupled multifield physical quantities, caused by internal or external heat sources, are limited and presented in a very useful form, exactly and explicitly.
