The paper's aim is to investigate a two‐dimensional deformation of homogeneous, anisotropic generalized thermoelastic diffusion as a result of an inclined load by applying Laplace and Fourier transforms. The inclined load is assumed to be a linear combination of a normal load and a tangential load.
As an application, concentrated and distributed loads have been taken to illustrate the utility of the approach. The transformed solutions are inverted numerically, using a numerical inversion technique.
The variations of normal displacement, temperature distribution and chemical potential distribution due to different sources for different angle of inclinations with distance have been shown graphically to depict the effect of diffusion and anisotropy. A special case is also deduced from the present investigation.
It can contribute to the theoretical consideration of the seismic and volcanic sources since it can account for the deformation fields in the entire volume surrounding the sources region.
