Thermodynamic Response of Beams on Winkler Foundation Irradiated by Moving Laser Pulses

In this paper, the exact analytical solutions are developed for the thermodynamic behavior of an Euler-Bernoulli beam resting on an elastic foundation and exposed to a time decaying laser pulse that scans over the beam with a uniform velocity. The governing equations, namely the heat conduction equa...
