The study deals with the development of the theory of thermo-inelasticity for the “elastic” material whose elastic moduli are different in tension (E +) and in compression (E ).

The proposed theory is based upon the mathematical theory of elasticity of double-modulus materials and upon the familiar Neuman’s hypothesis.

Proceeding from accepted principles, the general theory of thermo-inelasticity for the double-modulus material is developed and the solutions of some problems are presented.

A vital characteristic of the nonlinear equations and formulae derived is the fact that all the nonlinear terms representations depend upon the parameter (E +E )/(E + + E ), which is assumed small.

It is shown that neglect of heteroresistance may introduce significant errors.

Proceeding from the general principles of the heteromodulus theory of elasticity [1, 2] and from the fundamental hypotheses of the mathematical theory of thermo-elasticity [3, 4], a general stress-strain theory of heteromodulus materials, in a field of thermal effects, has been developed.
