Recently, taking the second law of thermodynamics as a starting point, a theoretical framework for an exact calculation of the elastothermodynamic damping in metal-matrix composites has been presented by the authors (Kinra and Milligan, 1994; Milligan and Kinra, 1993). Using this work as a foundation, we solve two canonical boundary value problems concerning elastothermodynamic damping in continuous-fiber-reinforced metal-matrix composites: (1) a fiber in an infinite matrix, and (2) using the general methodology given by Bishop and Kinra (1993), a fiber in a finite matrix. In both cases the solutions were obtained for the following loading conditions: (1) uniform radial stress and (2) uniform axial strain.
