Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to study the deformation of Green‐Naghdi (type III) thermoelastic solid half‐space under hydrostatic initial stress and rotation. Design/methodology/approach – The normal mode analysis is used to obtain the analytical expressions of the displacement components, force stress and temperature distribution. Findings – The numerical results are given and presented graphically when mechanical/thermal source is applied. Originality/value – Comparisons are made in the presence and absence of hydrostatic initial stress and rotation and their effect is shown graphically.
