The present problem is concerned with the deformation of an infinite fibre-reinforced generalized thermoe-lastic medium with hydrostatic initial stress under the influence of mechanical force. The normal mode analysis is used to obtain the analytical expressions of the displacement components, force stress and temperature distribution. The numerical results are given and presented graphically for Green -Lindsay [4] theory of thermoelasticity. Comparisons are made in the presence and absence of hydrostatic initial stress and anisotropy.
