In this work we describe a method by which the temperature of gradient coils, designed with arbitrary geometry using the inverse boundary element method, can be simulated. The method requires tuning of the thermal parameters of the coil and its support. This simulation method should aid the coil design process by allowing the thermal performance of multiple coil designs to be estimated without construction.
