According to Timatic, the system used by airlines https://www.timaticweb2.com/integration/external.php?ref=d975cfc59f5c0abd06d16e872198110b, transit without a visa is available for passengers transiting through Bangkok (BKK) with a confirmed onward ticket for a flight to a third country within 12 hours. They must stay in the international transit area of the airport and have documents required for the next destination.

Information on how to apply for a transit visa is available on http://www.mfa.go.th/main/en/services/4908/15398-Issuance-of-Visa.html
