Abstract

An analytical solution of transient temperature profile and heat flux variation for a semi-infinite body with a heat generation exponentially decaying with position is obtained. The initial temperature condition is assumed to be constant while the surface boundary either transfers heat to ambient by convection, is kept at constant temperature, or insulated.
