An analytic solution method, without integral transformation, is proposed to develop exact solutions for transient heat conduction in functionally graded circular hollow cylinders with general time-dependent boundary conditions. It is shown that if the thermal conductivity and the specific heat of the medium are in arbitrary polynomial function forms, the exact solutions of the system can be developed. The influences of physical properties on the heat conduction behavior of the system are studied. Finally, limiting studies and numerical analyses are given to illustrate the efficiency and the accuracy of the analysis.
