This paper presents a general treatment of the transient thermal stresses of a finite circular cylinder with consideration of the thermomechanical coupling effect using a new technique. The method used is quite useful for the solution of a wide range of transient thermal stress problems in two or three dimensions. From numerical results, we can find that there is a clear effect on the thermal stress distribution when the coupling term is taken into account.
