Closed-form solution is constructed to plane state of strain generated in a semi-infinite elastic medium when a portion of its boundary is heated. The heated region is assumed to be moving with uniform velocity. It is shown that stresses are bounded everywhere and are identically zero when the velocity of the moving temperature discontinuity vanishes. The study is based on uncoupled quasi-static thermoelastic theory.
