The present investigation deals with the response of thermomechanical sources in a thermoporoelastic medium. Laplace and Fourier transforms are  applied to investigate the problem. As an application of the approach concentrated and distributed sources are taken to illustrate the utility of the approach.  The expressions for displacement components, stress components, pore pressure and temperature change are obtained in the transformed domain. Numerical inversion technique has been applied to obtain the solution in physical domain. Effect of porosity is shown on the resulting quantities. A particular case of interest is also deduced from the present investigation.
