Abstract: The uniqueness of the solution of initial, mixed boundary value problems for linear thermoelastic shells is reconsidered within the context of recent developments in the thermomechanical theory of a Cosserat surface [4]. Fairly general boundary conditions are considered which allow mechanical contact with linear elastic media and thermal radiation on the boundary curve of the Cosserat surface and on the major surfaces of the shell.
