Abstract: Spatial behaviour is studied for the transient solutions in the bending of a Mindlin-type thermoelastic plate. Some appropriate time-weighted line-integral measures are associated with the transient solutions and the spatial estimates are established for these measures describing spatial behaviour results of the Saint-Venant and Phragmén-Lindelöf type. A complete description of the spatial behaviour is obtained by combining the spatial estimates with time-independent and time-dependent decay and growth rates. For a thermoelastic plate whose middle surface is like a semi-infinite strip, it is shown, by means of the maximum principle, that at infinity a sharper spatial decay holds and it is dominated by the thermal characteristics only. Uniqueness results are also established.
