Periodic heat conduction in a solid homogeneous finite cylinder
Analytic solution of the steady periodic, non-necessarily harmonic, heat conduction in a homogeneous cylinder of finite length and radius is given in term of Fourier transform of the fluctuating temperature field. The solutions are found for quite general boundary conditions (first, second and third kind on each surface) with the sole restriction of uniformity on the lateral surface and radial symmetry on the bases. The thermal quadrupole formalism is used to obtain a compact form of the solution that can be, with some exception, straightforwardly extended to multi-slab composite cylinders. The limiting cases of infinite thickness and infinite radius are also considered and solved.
