I am using COMSOL Multiphysics 5.2a in order to do thermal, mechanical and thermo-mechanical simulations. Due to a boundary load, my components get deformed which I can simulate very well. However, other quantities like temperature are plottet in the un-deformed original shape of the geometry which makes it a bit hard to really imagine what is happening.

Therefore, I have two questions.

  1. (How) can I plot the mesh in its distorted shape as it looks after the simulation?
  2. (How) can I plot other quantities in the distorted lab coordinate frame

I have an example of a (rotationally symmetric) thin soft metal sheet with an applied pressure from the top and a fixed bottom. You can see the deformed sheet here: Van Mises stress plot

Additionally, I applied a heat influx from the bottom and a constant temperature on the top which results in a temperature gradient. The result is seen here: Temperature plot As you can see, the temperature plot acts as if there was no deformation present.

The example doesn't make sense and is just there for illustration.
