The topic faced here is the modeling of an axisymmetric multilayer structure. An exact analytical formulation is proposed in the framework of the plane strain problem for a cylinder encircled by annular layers. Isotropic linear thermoelastic materials constitute the body. Perfect and imperfect contacts between the layers are made available for the analysis. The derived exact solution is compared to finite element simulations. Numerical applications are shown in order to study the dependency of the residual stress distribution on the constituent material properties during a cooling process. The role of residual stresses in brittle materials, particularly ceramics, is discussed.
