Abstract : The one-dimensional differential equation of heat conduction is solved for an infinite two-layer slab. The layers are in perfect thermal contact. The outer surface of the first layer receives a constant heat flux from its environment; the outer surface of the second layer does not have any heat flux leaving it. A formal application of the Laplace transform gives an analytic solution for the temperature distribution in the classic form of an infinite series. Roots of a transcendental equation needed for the series are included in Appendix A. (Author)
