Thermal Bowing Moment - Beam - Temperature Gradient

This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
Hi All,

I am doing thermal bowing/displacement of a cantilever beam subjected to temperature gradient.

What I noticed was the bowing is independent of the profile/beam cross section. It always takes the cross section maximum distance from face-face as unity.

Could anyone explain it, please? The displacement is inversely proportional to the face-face distance actually

Thank you
