Geometry (  mm) and boundary conditions (with  K). On the left end of the bar ( ), a thermomechanical loading is applied whereas both zero displacement, , and an initial set temperature, , are imposed constant with time on the right end of the bar ( ), that is, , for all and , for all ; denotes the unit vector in the -direction.
