Heat conduction in circular cylinders of functionally graded materials and laminated composites is studied with emphasis on the end effects. By means of matrix algebra and eigenfunction expansion, the decay length that characterizes the end effects on the thermal filed is evaluated and the 2D solution as a useful approximation assessed.
