The effects of cylindrically curvilinear mechanical and thermal material anisotropy on the stationary thermoelastic fields of generally laminated cylinders are studied. To model the stated problem, each individual ply of the cylinder is considered to be composed of both mechanically and thermally cylindrically anisotropic media whose governing fields satisfy the 3-D elasticity and conduction equations. Based on finite and infinite Fourier integral transforms together with the use of complex adjoint differential operators and complex power series expansions, a nonhomogeneous pseudo-stiffness procedure is used to develop the general solution form for the stated problem. Through the use of the model and its solution, several numerical experiments are presented which emphasize the significant effects of cylindrical material anisotropy on the governing fields of several different types of laminate configuration.
