A new method, involving the combined use of analysis and the finite-element method, is applicable to the heat conduction problem with isolated heat sources. Unlike the finite-element method, the analysis/finite-element combined method is able to discretize the distributed sources with discontinuities into course elements, and the solution is still calculated accurately. The results are compared in tables with exact solutions and other numerical data, and the agreement is found to be good.
