This paper consists of three parts. In the first part, the problem of the conversion of mechanical energy into heat is treated, while in the second a general theory of thermoelastic friction in three-dimensional finite bodies is developed. In the third part, explicit results are obtained for thermoelastic damping in vibrating elastic beams. All investigations are based on the linear theory of thermoelasticity.
