The present review on thermal stresses in materials with temperature-dependent properties focuses on papers published after 1980. The thermal and mechanical properties in materials subjected to thermal loads due to high temperature, high gradient temperature, and cyclical changes of temperature are dependent on temperature. The main theme of the thermoelastic problems in materials and structures with temperature-dependent material properties is to establish analytical procedures to solve the governing differential equations. In the thermo-inelastic problems, however, we must perform more accurate analysis of the practical problems (weld, heat treatment, metal forming, etc) taking account of the temperature-dependent material properties by use of numerical procedures (finite element methods, mainly).
