Stresses produced by a thermal gradient in the wall of a partially filled horizontal cylindrical vessel are presented. Three different thermal gradients are considered: 1) a discontinuous temperature change; 2) a hyperbolic temperature change; and 3) a linear temperature change at the liquid level. Thermal shock effects are also presented.
