An interactive cased based reasoning tool for assisting engineers with
the mathematical modelling tasks associated with the analysis of thermal
problems is described. By representing fundamental thermal modelling
scenarios as cases, complex physical systems are modelled in a piecewise
fashion by successive application of matching cases, thereby providing a
basis for validating cases in the context of the problem under
consideration. This work represents an alternative perspective to
model based reasoning approaches that have been applied to model
generation to date.
