In this paper, we have solved the problem of thermoelasticity concerning to a semi-infinite medium, when the boundary of the medium is subjected to pulse type heat flux. The results are evaluated numerically for various values of the parameters and are represented graphically. The results obtained here are more general, which reveal the inherent wave nature of the heat transfer process.

Key words:  Generalized thermoelasticity, Heat flux, Hyperbolic Heat conduction equation, Unit Step function, Thermal Stresses.
