Abstract : The one-dimensional time-dependent equation of heat conduction is solved for an infinite four-layer slab. The conventional Laplace Transform technique is not employed, but rather the method of separation of variables is applied to a novel eigenfunction expansion of the initial temperature distribution. Boundary conditions considered are constant heat flux entering the outside surface of the body and zero heat flux leaving the innermost surface. (Author)
