This article considers the thermoelastic stability of bimetallic shallow shells of revolution. Basic equations are derived from Reissner's non-linear theory of shells by assuming that deformations and rotations are small and that materials are linear elastic. The equations are further specialized for the case of a closed spherical cup. For this case the perturbated initial state is considered and it is shown that only in the cases when the cup edge is free or simply supported buckling under heating is possible. Further the perturbated flat state is considered and the critical temperature for bucklingis calculated for the case of free and simply supported edges. The temperature-deflection diagrams are calculated by the use of the collocation method for shallow spherical, conical and cubic shells.
