Analytical solutions of three problems in coupled thermoelasticity are presented for the case when the material coupling parameter equals unity. The problems considered are: (a) Danilovskaya’s problem of a step function in temperature at the surface; (b) a step function in surface strain; and (c) constant velocity impact. Solutions are presented for the case of thin bars (one-dimensional stress) and are obtained by the Laplace-transform technique. There is great simplification in the equations when the material coupling parameter equals unity which permits the straightforward inversion of the transformed solutions. The results demonstrate significant deviations from the corresponding uncoupled solutions.
