  title={Transient conduction in heterogeneous media},
  author={S. H. Lin},
Abstract A physical model of transient conduction in heterogeneous media is presented in this study. The thermal conductivity of the media is assumed to vary randomly. Temperature distributions in the media are generated using both random variable and constant average thermal conductivities. The results are employed to determine the percent differences in the predicted average temperature between these two cases and to assess the adequacy of the transient conduction model using average thermal… CONTINUE READING
