Abstract

A method is proposed for solving a thermoelasticity problem using a two-dimensional Fourier integral transform for thin, gently sloping orthotropic spherical shells heated by concentrated heat sources. A linear temperature distribution over the shell thickness and newtonian convective heat exchange with the surroundings are assumed. The effects of the curvature and orthotropic properties of the shall material on the internal force factors are estimated.
