The generalized dynamical theory of thermo-elasticity proposed byGreen and Lindsay is applied to study the propagation ofharmonically time-dependent thermo-visco-elastic plane waves ofassigned frequency in an infinite visco-elastic solid ofKelvin-Voigt type, when the entire medium rotates with a uniformangular velocity. A more general dispersion equation is deduced todetermine the effects of rotation, visco-elasticity, andrelaxation time on the phase-velocity of the coupled waves. Thesolutions for the phase velocity and attenuation coefficient areobtained for small thermo-elastic couplings by the perturbationtechnique. Taking an appropriate material, the numerical values ofthe phase velocity of the waves are computed and the results areshown graphically to illustrate the problem.
