Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present an electro‐thermo‐structural analysis based on the cell method (CM). Design/methodology/approach – CM is useful for solving coupled problems when the same geometrical discretization can be adopted for different phenomena. In this case, the same geometrical structures and operators can be used, leading to a simplification of the numerical model. Findings – In order to asses the performance of the proposed coupling scheme, results have been compared with values measured on a carbon‐fiber specimen heated by an electric current and with an applied the mechanical load. Originality/value – A new dynamic coupling scheme based on the CM has been proposed and assessed with respect to measurements. A good agreement between model results and measurements has been shown, at least until second order effects appears, like the breaking of some fibers of the specimen or high‐temperature effects on epoxy resin.
