This paper addresses a generalized analytical procedure for transient heat conduction in composite materials of two- and three-dimensional finite region. The Galerkin method is employed to obtain temperature field in closed form with the utilization of symbolic algebra software such as REDUCE or MACSYMA. It is found from illustrative examples that the proposed method yields accurate and effective predictions of temperature fields for which purely numerical methods such as finite element or finite difference are not suitable.
