Local stability of a finitely deformed solid with internal dissipation, subjected to followed type loads, has been studied by Nemat-Nasser [1], neglecting all thermal effects. On the other hand, thermoelastic stability under conservative loads was considered by Ericksen [2] and Koiter [3]. In the present paper, we combine the results in [1–3] to develop conditions for thermoelastic stability of solids subjected to nonconservative surface tractions. We ignore body forces, although they can easily be included.
