For incompressible isotropic elastic heat conducting solids we examine the classes of universal deformations that are controllable under homothermal conditions and, in respect of a general law of heat conduction, determine the members of these classes that can support non-homothermal temperature fields. It is shown, in particular, that in some cases the values of the components of the (Cauchy) stress tensor T necessary for the satisfaction of the equilibrium equation del center dot T = 0 in the homothermal. problem are retained in the corresponding non-homothermal problem to within an additive constant. These observations have implications for the design of experiments in which a material is subject to a temperature gradient since it is of value to know in advance that a specific deformation can be controlled in the presence of a suitable temperature gradient. The temperature may then be obtained as the solution of the steady state heat equation.
