Two-dimensional problems constitute an important special class within the field of thermoelasticity. They fall into two distinct types: plane strain and plane stress. In contradistinction to general three-dimensional thermoelasticity, very powerful mathematical methods are available for the solution of these problems. They will be discussed in this chapter.
