Abstract
(English)
The paper starts out by recalling a constitutive equation of no-tension materiate that accounts for thermal dilatation and the temperature dependence of the material constants. Subsequently, a numerical method is presented for solving, via the finite element method, equilibrium problems of no-tension solids subjected to thermal loads. Finally, three examples are solved and discussed: a spherical container subjected to two uniform radiai pressures and a steady temperature distribution, a masonry arch subjected to a uniform temperature distribution and a converter used in the steel and iron industry.
