A generalized Transform Methods based Finite Element methodology for interfacing interdisciplinary areas with emphasis on Thermal/Structural applications is described. The purpose of the paper is to present an alternate methodology for interdisciplinary analysis. Characteristic features of the methodology and fundamental concepts are highlighted for the interdisciplinary areas of heat transfer and structural mechanics. Details of a Laplace Transform based finite element interface methodology are described and applied to flexural members subjected to rapid surface heating.
