Heat transfer in multi-layered media with temperature dependent sources

  • 53 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


The paper describes a theoretical investigation of heat transfer in stratified horizontal slab and spherical shell containing temperature dependent heat sources. The desired expressions of temperatures contain only ordinary functions suitable for high speed computation. The results can find applications in defining the local and global temperature distributions in the earth's crust.
