Abstract : Within the scope of the non-isothermal theory of an elastic Cosserat surface and for a system of linear equations characterizing the initial mixed boundary-value problems of thermoelastic shells, a uniqueness theorem is obtained without the use of definiteness assumption for the free energy. The theorem holds for nonhomogeneous and anisotropic shells undergoing small motions (and small temperature change) superposed on a large deformation. (Author)
