In the present paper, the general expressions for temperature distribution in an orthotropic plate of finite dimensions have been derived under the influence of an arbitrary volume heat source and arbitrary initial temperature distribution. The boundary conditions prescribed on the faces are of second kind. The solution is obtained by constructing an eigen value problem.
The expression for unsteady temperature distribution consists of two parts—steady and pseudo-steady. The pseudo-steady parts of the solution have been obtained with the help of finite integral transform technique. The general expressions are further studied under different cases.
The whole analysis is presented in the dimensionless form with the help of various dimensionless parameters,
