In many problems arising from structural and mechanical situations, components are subject to combined thermal-mechanical effects. A brake rotor being engaged will generate heat from friction, leading to a temperature increase in the component. A bridge girder being heated from the top by solar radiation will bend upwards due to uneven temperature distribution. Thermal effects may induce significant stresses on a component if the material is sensitive to temperature variations. This presents a multiphysics, coupled thermal-structural problem, whose solution may be furnished by the powerful solvers used by the engineers at ENA2.
