In this paper, we report on temperature effects associated with elastic electromagnetic forming by pulsed electromagnetic fields in inhomogeneous, linear, and lossy media. In a previous paper, we discussed the electromagnetic forces associated with these pulsed electromagnetic fields. Here, we calculate the temperature rise from the equation of heat flow in an isolated object to be deformed. The temperature rise is included in the elastodynamic problem to be solved for the presence of electromagnetic forces, and as a consequence the thermoelastic field can be obtained. As an example, we calculate the thermoelastic field in a hollow cylindrical object.
