Abstract

A general finite-element model is proposed to deal with dynamic theromelastic problems especially with longer transient period. The method consists of formulating and solving the problem in the Laplace transform domain by the Finite Element Method (FEM) and then numerically inverting the transformed solution to obtain the time-domain response. Therefore, the transient solutions at any time could be evaluated directly. A number of examples are presented which demonstrate the accuracy, efficiency, and versatility of the proposed method, and show the effects of relaxation times, inertia, and thermoelastic coupling terms.
