Green's Function For Radial Heat Conduction in TwoRegion Composite Cylinders With Perfect Boundary Contact
20 Mar 2013  Papers  Contributor(s): Donald E. Amos
This paper presents the derivation of the Green's function for composite cylinders 0<r<a and r>a in perfect contact on the surface r=a. Because the source function can be in either region, there are two pairs of functions which define the Green's function. Each pair is the solution to a...
