The present investigation deals with the wave propagation in heat conducting transversely isotropic micropolar viscoelastic half space. Lord and Shulman (1967), Green and Lindsay (1972) and coupled thermoelasticity theories are considered to investigate the problem. The phase velocity and attenuation quality factors are obtained. The expressions for amplitudes of displacement component, microrotation, temperature distribution and stress components are obtained. The resulting quantities are computed numerically and effect of viscosity on these is shown graphically. Some special cases are also introduced from the present investigation.
