Abstract : A fourth-order technique for the numerical solution of transient heat-transfer equations involving conduction, convection, and radiation is presented. Approximating parabolas and Taylor series expansions are methods that are employed to facilitate the use of fourth-order finitedifference equations and Runge-Kutta techniques. The properties of the solutions are derived by graphic comparison with a reference case: Laplace transform-step-function solution. (Author)
