In the paper we study the problem of control by means of a heat source g for a thermoelastic system of equationsutt - ρ∇·p(θ, ∇u) - νΔut + DΔ2 u = f, cv(θ, ∇u)θt - κΔθ - ρθ[pθ (θ, ∇u)·∇ut] - ν∣∇ut∣2 = g, in a two-dimensional domain, where both viscosity ν and rigidity D are positive. Such a system has been considered in our former papers, and existence of solutions as well as uniqueness have been obtained. Here we prove the continuity and differentiability of solutions under somewhat stronger assumptions. An example of a control problem and necessary optimality conditions are presented. The system has an interpretation as a plate reinforced with shape memory alloy (SMA) wire mesh. © 1998 B. G. Teubner Stuttgart-John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
