Abstract : Finite difference equations are employed to solve the problem of transient heat transfer through a plane wall and through a hollow cylinder. The plane wall is exposed to a temperature shock at both surfaces, while the hollow cylinder is exposed to a temperature shock only at the exterior surface. Any initial temperature distribution may be assumed for the plane wall. The cylinder, however, is assumed to be at a constant temperature initially. Various boundary conditions at the exterior and interior surfaces are considered for the hollow cylinder. Dgital computer programs are developed for the finite difference equations so that numerical answers may be obtained. (Author)
