A method is developed for obtaining fundamental thermal and thermoelastic solutions for thermal distributions moving over the surface of an elastic half space. This method uses the concept of a moving temperature wave along with a novel form of an exponential Fourier transform. The technique is developed and then demonstrated on the example of a moving heat source. Exact results are matched with results from Carslaw and Jaeger (1959) and Barber (1984).
