Abstract : This study is a sequel of Francfort 1, where homogenization of linear dynamic thermoelasticity with rapidly varying coefficients had been performed. We demonstrate how consideration of a simple one-dimensional example leads to numerical results that exhibit all the features that were theoretically predicted and in particular the presence of fast oscillations in the temperature field.
