Abstract: The variational principles for displacements, for stresses and for both displacements and stresses in isothermal elasticity are extended to the coupled processes of thermoelasticity and heat conduction in a three-dimensional, anisotropic body. The character of these principles is examined and it is established that in a stable system one is concerned with a minimum, a maximum and a stationary value problem, respectively.
