This paper is devoted to study the reflection of thermoelastic plane waves from the thermally insulated stress-free boundary of a homogeneous, isotropic and thermally conducting elastic half-space. A new linear theory of generalized thermoelasticity under heat transfer with memory-dependent derivative (MDD) is employed to address this study. It has been found that three basic waves consisting of two sets of coupled longitudinal waves and one independent vertically shear-type wave may travel with distinct phase speeds. The formulae for various reflection coefficients and their respective energy ratios are determined in case of an incident coupled longitudinal elastic wave at the thermally insulated stress-free boundary of the medium. The results for the reflection coefficients and their respective energy ratios for various values of the angle of incidence are computed numerically and presented graphically for copper-like material and discussed.
