The methods of thermal stress analysis due to M. A. Biot are applied to the solution of one, two, and three dimensional thermal stress problems. Both transient and steady-state cases are considered. Specific examples are used to demonstrate, step by step, the application of the basic theory. Detailed results are given. Emphasis is placed on examples which permit comparison of results with classical solutions. Also developed, in general form, is a computer oriented method which can be applied to structures of arbitrary shapes subjected to arbitrary heating conditions. Furthermore, pertinent portions of Biots theory are included when required as background for the specific approaches developed. Author
