In this thesis we study wave stability in the context of three theories of thermoelasticity:
temperature-rate-dependent thermoelasticity TRDTE which was formulated
by Green and Lindsay [21]; temperature-rate-dependent thermoelasticity with generalized
thermoelasticity, which we label TRDTE + GTE (1), formulated by Chandrasekharaiah
and Keshavan [23]; and an alternative theory of temperature-ratedependent
thermoelasticity with generalized thermoelasticity, labelled TRDTE +
GTE (2), formulated by Ignaczak [25]. Both anisotropic and isotropic thermoelastic
materials are under consideration in this thesis. We are concerned with three
cases: unconstrained; the usual deformation-temperature constraint; and the alternative
deformation-temperature constraint. We �nd that in all these cases wave stability/
instability is a�ected by the occurrence of the relaxation times �0 and �1 in
TRDTE, and �0, �1 and � in TRDTE + GTE (1) and TRDTE + GTE (2).
