### Abstract:

A phenomenon of reflection of plane waves from a thermally insulated surface of a solid half-space is studied in the context of Lord-Shulman theory of generalized thermo-viscoelasticity with voids. The governing equations of generalized thermo-viscoelastic medium with voids are specialized in x-z plane. The plane wave solution of these equations shows the existence of three coupled longitudinal waves and a shear vertical wave in a generalized thermo-viscoelastic medium with voids. For incident plane wave (longitudinal or shear), three coupled longitudinal waves and a shear vertical wave reflect back in the medium. The mechanical boundary conditions on the free surface of solid half-space are consid- ered as impedance boundary conditions, in which the shear force tractions are assumed to vary linearly with the tangential displacement components multiplied by the frequency. The impedance corresponds to the constant of proportionality. The appropriate potentials of incident and reflected waves in the half-space will satisfy the required impedance boundary condi- tions. A non-homogeneous system of four equations in the amplitude ratios of reflected waves is obtained. These amplitude ratios are functions of material parameters, impedance parameter, angle of incidence, thermal relaxation and speeds of plane waves. Using relevant material parameters for medium, the amplitude ratios are computed numerically and plotted against certain ranges of the impedance parameter and the angle of incidence.
