The present investigation is concerned with the reflection and transmission coefficients of plane waves at the interface of generalized Viscothermoelastic solid half-space and heat conducting micropolar fluid half-space. The amplitude ratios of different reflected and transmitted waves with various angle of incidence have been  computed numerically and shown graphically. Viscosity, Micropolarity and thermal relaxation effects are shown on the amplitude ratios for specific model. Some special and particular cases of interest are also deduced from this  investigation.

Keyword : Elastic solid; Viscothermoelasticity; Micropolar fluid; Amplitude ratios; Reflection coefficient; Transmission coefficient; Angle of incidence.
