Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to provide a working report for potential future modifications to existing heat conduction codes. A generalized form of the two-dimensional (2-D) arbitrary geometry axisymmetric heat conduction equation has been derived from first principles. This has been further generalized by allowing nonidealized anisotropic behavior of the material properties.
