The purpose of this website is primarily to give an introduction to thermomechanics for precision engineers. And secondly to be a starting point for mechanical engineers in the quest for knowledge how to solve thermomechanical problems, as well as to get an understanding how thermomechanics affects a mechanical design.

Since this is a website by engineers for engineers, we are happy to receive your comments on this website. Please contact us at: info@dspe.nl

List of calculators:

  • Lump Mass model – steady state
    Calculate the temperature of a model with multiple bodies connected with conduction, convection and radiation couplings.
  • Lump Mass model – transient
    Calculate the temperature of a model with multiple bodies connected with conduction, convection and radiation couplings. The steady state temperature situation and the temperature distribution in time can be calculated.
  • Radiation
    Two bodies transfer heat via radiation to each other and to the environment.
  • Gas conduction
    Calculate the thermal conduction between two bodies, separated by a gap filled with gas.
  • Thermal deformation
    Calculate the deflection of a multi layer strip due to temperature.
