In this paper, a novel multiscale computational method is presented to simulate and analyze dynamic thermo-mechanical problems of composite structures with diverse periodic configurations in different subdomains. In these composite structures, thermo-mechanical coupled behaviors at microscale have an important impact on the macroscopic displacement and temperature fields. Firstly, the novel second-order two-scale (SOTS) solutions for these multiscale problems are successfully obtained based on multiscale asymptotic analysis. Then, the error analysis in the pointwise sense is given to illustrate the importance of developing the SOTS solutions. Furthermore, the error estimate for the SOTS approximate solutions in the integral sense is presented. In addition, a SOTS numerical algorithm is proposed to effectively solve these problems based on finite element method, finite difference method and decoupling method. Finally, some numerical examples are shown, which demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the SOTS numerical algorithm we proposed. In this paper, a unified two-scale computational framework is established for dynamic thermo-mechanical problems of composite structures with diverse periodic configurations in different subdomains.
