Hi all,

I'd like to model and visualize thermal deformation (like a bi-metal strip) or just simple thermal expansion of a solid, and I was wondering if it is possible to do that in paraFoam.
If yes, how could it be done?

There's a "warp by vector" feature in paraview, so you can warp by the deformation D created by solidDisplacementFoam, which can model thermal expansion of solids.
