The paper focuses on the propagation of Rayleigh waves in a homogeneous isotropic, thermally conducting elastic solid half-space underlying a half-space of inviscid liquid at varying temperature in the context of coupled theory of thermoelasticity. The fundamental equations for coupled thermoelasticity with boundary conditions are derived. After developing mathematical model, the secular equations for Rayleigh waves in compact form are derived. Finally, in order to illustrate the analytical results, the numerical calculations have been carried out for aluminum-epoxy composite material solid half-space underlying an inviscid liquid half-space and presented graphically.
