The stresses due to a sudden rise in surface temperature on one side of a fixed ended arch with a rectangular cross-section are evaluated, taking into account the temperature variation in the interior of the arch. The results are extended to the case of a surface temperature which first increases linearly and then remains constant, by means of a Duhamel integral to the case of an arbitrary temperature applied to the surface of the structure.
