A transient thennoelasticity problem of a multilayered anisotropic medium under the state of generalized plane deformation is considered in this note. Thefiexibility/stifiess matrix method is adopted here to obtain the complete solution of the entire layered medium by introducing the thermal and mechanical boundary and layer intelface conditions in the Fourier and Laplace transform domains. As a numerical illustration, the distributions of transient temperatures and thermal stresses in a laminated anisotropic slab subjected to a uniform sugace temperature rise are presented for some stacking sequences of fiber-reinforced layers.
