In the present work, a thick circular plate with axisymmetric heat supply has been
considered. It is assumed that lower and upper surfaces of the plate are traction free. The plate
is subjected to an axisymmetric heat supply depending on the radial and axial directions of the
cylindrical polar co-ordinate system with symmetry about z-axis. The initial temperature in the
thick plate is given by a constant temperature T0 and the heat flux is prescribed on the upper
and lower boundary surfaces. Integral transform technique and its inversion is applied to
determine displacement components, stresses, conductive temperature and temperature change.
The results have been computed numerically and are illustrated graphically.
