In general, the thermal model has a lower resolution than the structural FE model used for linear thermoelastic analysis. Besides a difference in mesh resolution, the methods used for the thermal and structural analyses differ as well. This complicates the transfer, also referred to as temperature mapping, of the calculated temperatures of the thermal model as temperature loading on the FE model for thermoelastic response calculation. This chapter discusses four different systematic methods for temperature mapping.
