Abstract Two linear, transient heat conduction problems set in quadrants 1 and 2 of the (x,y) plane are solved. In each problem, the quadrants have distinct, constant physical properties and are separated by an infinitely thin thermal resistance along the y-axis. Each region is initially at zero temperature. In Problem I, constant fluxes are specified along the x-axis boundaries to complete the problem definition; while in Problem II, constant temperatures are specified.
