Abstract: In this paper we study a transmission problem for thermoelastic plates. We prove that the problem is well-posed in the sense that there exists only one solution which is as regular as the initial data. Moreover, we prove that the local thermal effect is strong enough to produce uniform rate of decay of the solution. More precisely, there exist positive constants $ C$ and $ \gamma $ such that the total energy $ E\left( t \right)$ satisfies

$\displaystyle E\left( t \right) \le CE\left( 0 \right){e^{ - \gamma t}}$
