Our goal is to study the transient heat load within solid structures of complex geometries via a fluid-structure coupling. This coupling is challenging because of the great disparities in time scales of the physical models. In the quasi-dynamic procedure proposed in the paper, a solid transient state is coupled with a sequence of fluid steady states. A numerical application simulating the severe thermal conditions of a solid propellant rocket has shown that the CPU time is greatly reduced, while maintaining a very good accuracy.
