Uniqueness and spatial stability are investigated for smooth solutions to boundary value
problems in non-classical linearised and linear thermoelasticity subject to certain conditions
on material coefficients. Uniqueness is derived for standard boundary conditions
on bounded regions using a generalisation of Kirchhoff’s method. Spatial stability is discussed
for the semi-infinite prismatic cylinder in the absence of specified axial asymptotic
behaviour. Alternative growth and decay estimates are established principally for the
cross-sectional energy flux that is shown to satisfy a first order differential inequality.
Uniqueness in the class of solutions with bounded energy follows as a corollary.
Separate discussion is required for the linearised and linear theories. Although the general
approach is similar for both theories, the argument must be considerably modified for
the treatment of the linear theory.
