In this paper, the propagation of time-harmonic plane waves is investigated in an infinite elastic solid material by employing the modified Green–Lindsay (MGL) model of generalized thermoelasticity. It is found that three basic waves consisting of two sets of coupled longitudinal waves and one independent vertically shear-type (SV-type) wave may travel with distinct speeds. The sets of coupled waves are found to be dispersive, attenuating and influenced by the thermoelastic coupling effect. In contrast to the Green–Lindsay (GL) as well as the Lord–Shulman (LS) models, the SV-type wave is not only dispersive in nature but also experiences attenuation. Reflection phenomenon of an incident coupled longitudinal wave from stress-free and thermally insulated boundary surface of a thermoelastic solid half-space is addressed. Using these boundary conditions, the formulae for various reflection coefficients and their respective energy ratios are presented. For a particular model, various graphs are plotted to analyze the behavior of the phase speeds, reflection coefficients and their respective energy ratios. The characteristics of employing the MGL model are discussed by comparing the numerical results obtained for the present model with those obtained in the case of the GL model. © 2020, © 2020 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
