This note is concerned with thermoelastic analysis of a multilayered anisotropic medium under the state of generalized plane deformation with interlayer thermal contact resistance. The powerful flexibility/stiffness matrix method is adopted here to obtain the complete solution of the entire layered medium by introducing the thermal and mechanical boundary and layer interface conditions including interlayer imperfect thermal contact conditions. As a numerical illustration, the effects of interlayer thermal resistance on the distributions of temperatures and thermal stresses in a laminated anisotropic slab subjected to a uniform surface temperature rise are presented.
