Abstract : The one-dimensional time-dependent equation of heat conduction is solved for an infinite three-layer slab. The conventional Laplace transform technique is not employed, but rather the method of separation of variables is applied with a novel eigenfunction expansion of the initial temperature distribution. Boundary conditions considered are constant flux on one side of the slab and zero flux on the other. (Author)
