## Summary

This paper deals with the transient response of one-dimensional axisymmetric quasistatic coupled thermoelastic problems. Laplace transform and finite difference methods are used to analyze the problems. Using the Laplace transform with respect to time, the general solutions of the governing equations are obtained in the transform domain. The solution is obtained by using the matrix similarity transformation and inverse Laplace transform. We obtain solutions for the temperature and thermal stress distribution in a transient state. Moreover, the computational procedures established in this article can solve the generalized thermoelasticity problem for a multilayered hollow cylinder with orthotropic material properties.
