This paper contains an exact solution for the transient temperature distribution and the associated quasi-static thermal stresses and deformations which arise in a finite circular disk subjected to an instantaneous point heat source acting on its periphery. The solutions given are in the form of double infinite series, and extensive illustrative numerical results are included. The solutions are pertinent to problems which occur in welding engineering and in modern nuclear technology.
