The propagation of thermoelastic waves in a homogeneous, isotropic elastic semi-infinite space is subjected to rotation and initial stress, which is at temperature T0 - initially, and whose boundary surface is subjected to heat source and load moving with finite velocity. Temperature and stress distribution occurring due to heating or cooling and have been determined using certain boundary conditions. Numerical results have been given and illustrated graphically in each case considered. Comparison is made with the results predicted by the theory of thermoelasticity in the absence of rotation and initial stress. The results indicate that the effect of the rotation and initial stress is very pronounced.
