An infinite plate of thickness , initially at a uniform temperature To, is subjected to a sudden uniformly distributed
heat generation rate q and a surface temperature Ts. Determine the temperature distribution in the plate after
12 minutes. Figure 115.1 Heat-Generating Slab Problem Sketch Material Properties
