EremeyevIn this investigation, a computational analysis is conducted to study a magnetothermoelastic problem for an isotropic perfectly conducting halfspace medium. The medium is subjected to a periodic heat flow in the presence of a continuous longitude magnetic field. Based on Moore–Gibson–Thompson equation, a new generalized model has been investigated to address the considered problem. The introduced
