The boundary integral formulation for unsteady thermal stresses in three-dimensional quasi-static problems is proposed. It is shown that three-dimensional unsteady thermal stress problems can be solved easily without the volume integral by means of the thermoelastic displacement potential and the boundary-element method. It is also shown that the time integral can be easily carried out analytically. In order to investigate the accuracy of this method, unsteady thermal stress distributions for a cube are obtained.
