A note on conduction of heat in anisotropic media

  • B. T. Chao
Article

Summary

An apparent paradox concerning coordinate transformation used in the solution of equation of heat conduction for homogeneous but anisotropic solids is discussed and resolved. Results for point source solutions in stationary and moving media of infinite extent are given.
