Abstract : A computer program is described which solves for thermal and mechanical stresses in a cylinder composed of up to ten different materials hard bonded together. The cylinder may be hollow or solid, the materials may be porous or non-porous, and the mechanical properties may be temperature dependent. The analysis is based on the assumption of generalized plane strain, and the numerical solution is developed using finite differences. (Author)
