This paper contains an exact solution for the transient temperature distribution, as well as for the accompanying quasi-static thermal stresses and deformations, which arise in an infinitely long elastic circular shaft if its surface temperature undergoes a sudden uniform change over a finite band between two cross sections and is steadily maintained thereafter. The solution given is in the form of definite integrals and infinite series, whose convergence is discussed. Extensive illustrative numerical results are included.
