The Laplace and Fourier transforms have been employed to find the general solution to the fields equations in porous generalized thermoelastic medium subjected to thermomechanical boundary conditions permeated with various heat sources; in the transformed form. On the boundary surface, the distributed sources have been taken. To get the solution in the physical form, a numerical inversion technique has been used. The effect of continuous and moving heat sources with the thermomechanical boundary conditions; and the response of boundary sources (concentrated and continuous) with heat source varying with depth; on the normal stress component, change in volume fraction field and temperature distribution have been depicted graphically for a particular model. A particular case is also deduced from the present formulation.
