An expression is derived for the surface displacement of a semi-infinite solid which is heated uniformly over a circular area after time t = 0. The displacement is shown to be a function of the group Image , where a is the radius of the heated area. Numerical results for the displacement at the centre of the heated area are tabulated. A description of the numerical method involved in evaluating the integrals derived is included in the Appendix.
