Paper Abstract

A method for simulating infrared images based on Solids Modeling has been developed at ERIM. The method predicts temperatures of complicated objects that can be described easily using Solids Modeling. The key development is a thermal conduction model that is automatically created from the Solids Model. The thermal model is required to predict the temperatures of the object. The creation of the thermal conduction model is rooted in the concept of automatically converting the geometry from one kind of representation to another. An automatic conversion of geometry representation maintains the ease of use in creating complicated geometries expected from today's Solids Modelers while allowing temperature prediction to be practically accomplished. This method also allows multispectral image simulation to be accomplished with a single geometry representation. The key technique used for the creation of the thermal model is discussed along with a brief discussion of how the current method fits into the context of integrated, multispectral image simulation.
