self equilibrating stress

why thermal stress is self equilibrating

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Thermal stress does not develop when the free displacement is not constrained. How is this related to the term self equilibrating?


Say, I have a plate with the upper and lower surfaces at two different temperatures. The plate is not having any other constraint to prevent themal expansion. Why thermal stresses will not be generated in this case ( because of temperature gradient)?
