Abstract

A state space approach to heat conduction in a cylindrically anisotropic circular tube of functionally graded materials (FGM) is presented. A power-law type of the radial inhomogeneity for the FGM is considered. By means of eigenfunction expansion and matrix algebra, analytic solutions for transient and steady-state heat conduction in the FGM tube under general thermal boundary conditions are derived.
