By accounting for the effects of multiple time derivatives, this advanced model provides a more accurate representation of how skin tissue behaves under different temperature conditions. The thin skin tissue is considered to have mechanically clamped surfaces, which are assumed to be one-dimensional. Furthermore, the skin tissue experiences a thermal shock load on its outer surface while maintaining a constant temperature on its inner surface. The proposed model has led to the derivation of certain generalized thermoelasticity theories in previous studies. The Laplace transform and its associated numerical inversion method are employed to calculate the distributions of temperature, displacement, dilatation, and stress in the system. The obtained outcomes are explicitly depicted to analyze the significant influences on the distributions of the field variables. These findings shed light on the behavior of skin tissue when subjected to a particular temperature distribution at the boundary condition, enhancing our knowledge in this area.https://jcamech.ut.ac.ir/article_94311_d7b2d2a964371cbe702265995bcb0e4f.pdf
