Thermal stress problems are analysed using two coupled boundary element codes. The first code computes the temperature and heat flux distributions whereas the second one uses these results to calculate the displacements and stresses at any point. In both codes, the multiple reciprocity method is used in order to avoid the domain discretization due to the ‘body force’ terms. Examples with different geometry and different heat sources are presented to check the accuracy of the formulations.
