1 INTRODUCTION
Eringen (1966) developed the theory of micropolar elasticity which has aroused much interest in recent years because of its possible usefulness in investigating the deformation properties of solids for which the classical theory is inadequate. There are at least two different generalizations related to the classical theory of thermoelasticity. The first one given by Lord and Shulman (1967) admits only one relaxation time and the second one given by Green and Lindsay (1972) involves two relaxation times.
The linear theory of micropolar thermoelasticity has been developed by extending the theory of micropolar continua. Eringen (1970, 1999) and Nowacki (1986) have given detailed reviews on the subject. Boschi and Iesan (1973) extended the generalized theory of micropolar thermoelasticity which allows the transmission of heat as thermal waves of finite speed. The generalized thermoelasticity was presented by Dost and Taborrok (1978) by using Green and Lindsay theory. Chandrasekharaiah (1986) developed a heat flux dependent micropolar thermoelasticity.
Thermoelasticity with two temperatures is one of the nonclassical theories of thermoelasticity. The thermal dependence is the main difference of this theory with respect to the classical one. A theory of heat conduction in deformable bodies depends on two distinct temperatures, the conductive temperature ∅ and thermodynamic temperature . The thermodynamic temperature θ has been introduced by Chen et al. (1968, 1969). The difference between these two temperatures is proportional to the heat supply for time independent situations. For time dependent and for wave propagation problems, the two temperatures are in general different, regardless of the presence of heat supply. Warren and Chen (1973) investigated the wave propagation in the two temperatures theory of thermoelasticity.
The study related to the interaction of elastic waves with fluid loaded solids has been recognized as a viable means for deriving the nondestructive evaluation of solid structures. The reflected acoustic field from a fluidsolid interface provides details of many characteristics of solids.
These phenomena have been investigated for the simple isotropic semispace as well as the complicated systems of multilayered anisotropic media. A detailed review in this respect is given by Nayfeh (1995). Qi (1994) investigated the influence of viscous fluid loading on the propagation of leaky Rayleigh waves in the presence of heat conduction effects. Wu and Zhu (1995) suggested an alternative approach to the treatment of Qi (1994). They presented solutions for the dispersion relations of leaky Rayleigh waves in the absence of heat conduction effects. Zhu and Wu (1995) used this technique to study Lamb waves in submerged and fluid coated plates. Nayfeh and Nagy (1997) formulated the exact characteristic equations for leaky waves propagating along the interfaces of systems which involve isotropic elastic solids loaded with viscous fluids, including halfspaces and finite thickness fluid layers.
Youssef (2006) presented a new theory of generalized thermoelasticity by considering the interaction of heat conduction in deformable bodies. A uniqueness theorem for generalized linear thermoelasticity involving a homogeneous and isotropic body was also recorded in this study. Various authors, e.g. (Puri and Jordan (2007), Youssef and AlLehaibi (2007), Youssef and AlHarby (2007), Magana and Quintanilla (2009), Mukhopadhyay and Kumar (2009), Kumar and Mukhopadhyay (2010), Kaushal et al. (2010, 2011) studied the problems of thermoelastic media with two temperatures.
Various investigators have studied the wave propagation problems in micropolar media e.g. Boschi (1973), Maugin (1974), Yerofeyev and Soldatov (1999), Erofeev (2003), Altenbach et al. (2010), Eremeyev et al. (2007), Eremeyev (2005).
The problems of wave propagation in micropolar thermoelastic plates have been investigated by Nowacki and Nowacki (1969), Kumar and Gogna (1988), Tomar (2002, 2005), Kumar and Pratap (2006, 2007a,2007b, 2008, 2009, 2010), Sharma et al. (2008), Sharma and Kumar (2009).
Qingyong Sun et al. (2011) studied propagation characteristics of longitudinal displacement wave in micropolar fluid with micropolar elastic plate, Singh (2010) discussed propagation of thermoelastic waves in micropolar mixture of porous media.
In the present paper, the propagation of waves in an infinite homogeneous micropolar generalized thermoelastic plate with two temperatures bordered with layers or halfspaces of inviscid liquid have been investigated. The secular equations have been derived. The phase velocity, attenuation coefficient, amplitudes of dilatation, microrotation vector and heat flux for the symmetric and skewsymmetric wave modes are computed numerically and presented graphically for GL theory.

Fig. 4 shows that for (n=0) symmetric mode of propagation, the velocities for GANLS are greater than GNLS for and in the remaining region, the behavior is opposite. It is also noted that for (n=1) mode, the phase velocities for GANLS are greater than the phase velocities for GNLS in the whole region. The values for GANLS are greater than the values for GNLS in the whole region, except for
Fig. 5 depicts that for (n=0) skewsymmetric mode of propagation, the velocities for GNLSK and GANLSK coincide. It is evident that for (n=1) mode, the phase velocities for GANLSK and the values for GNLSK differ near the vanishing wave number and with increase in wave number they coincide. For (n=2) skewsymmetric mode, the phase velocities for NLSK and ANLSK coincide in the whole region, except for ξd = 3.
7.2 Attenuation Coefficients
Fig. 6 depicts that for symmetric leaky Lamb wave mode (n=0), the attenuation coefficient for GLS remain more than the attenuation coefficient for GALS when and , while in the remaining region, the behavior is reversed. For (n=1), the values for GLS oscillate and attain maximum value at . It is noticed that for (n=2), the attenuation coefficient for GALS remain more than the values for GLS in the whole region, except in the region, where the behavior is reversed.

Figs. 10 and 11 depict the variations of symmetric and skewsymmetric amplitudes of dilatation for GL theory for stressfree thermally insulated boundary. The dilatation is having minimum value at the centre and maximum value between the centre and the surfaces for symmetric mode and maximum value at the centre for skewsymmetric mode. It is observed that the dilatation for TS remain more than the dilatation for GT in the whole region for both symmetric and skewsymmetric modes.
It is evident from figs. 12 and 13 that the amplitude of symmetric and skewsymmetric microrotation is minimum at the centre and obtain maximum value at the surfaces.
The amplitude of symmetric and skewsymmetric heat flux is oscillatory. For symmetric mode and skewsymmetric mode, the amplitude of heat flux attain maximum value at the sufaces and minimum value at the centre, as shown in figures 14 and 15.
8 CONCLUSION
It is observed that the variation of phase velocities of lowest symmetric and skewsymmetric mode for leaky and nonleaky Lamb waves almost coincide with increase in wave number. The phase velocities for higher symmetric and skewsymmetric mode attain maximum value at vanishing wave number and as wave number increase the phase velocities get decreased sharply. For (n=2) symmetric mode, the attenuation coefficient for GLS is greater than the values for GALS in the whole region . It is noticed that the values of attenuation coefficient for lowest symmetric and skewsymmetric mode for leaky and nonleaky Lamb waves are very small as compared to the values for highest mode. The values of symmetric and skewsymmetric dilatation for TS are higher in comparison to GT that reveals the effect of two temperatures.
