A linear two-temperature theory of thermoelasticity is used to investigate the stresses arising from the aerodynamic heating of a solid isotropic sphere. The major effect of this theory as contrasted with the classical one-temperature theory is to mitigate the maximum compressive stress occurring on the surface of the sphere and to retard its occurrence.
