The present paper deals with the investigation of the propagation of harmonic plane waves with assigned frequency by employing the thermoelasticity theory with dual-phase-lags (Tzou [7], Chandrasekharaiah [10]). The exact dispersion relation solutions for the plane wave are obtained analytically and asymptotic expressions of several characterizations of the wave fields, such as phase velocity, specific loss, penetration depth and amplitude ratios are obtained for both the high frequency as well as low frequency values. In order to illustrate the analytical results, the computational tool Mathematica is used to find the numerical values of different wave fields at intermediate values of frequency and results are depicted in different figures. A detailed analysis of the effects of phase-lags on plane wave is presented on the basis of analytical and numerical results and significant points are highlighted.
