Transient heat conduction

by / Monday, 20 March 2017 / Published in Technical Corner

Generally, the temperature of a body varies with time as well as position.
In heat conduction under steady conditions, the temperature of a body at any point does not change with time. Thus, it can be concluded that this type of heat conduction is a function of position only.
In heat conduction under unsteady state conditions, the temperature of a body at any point varies with time as well as position in one- dimensional and multidimensional systems. This type of heat conduction is also known as transient heat conduction.
