An analytical study of the temperature distribution along thin fins with temperature-dependent thermal properties and internal heat generation is presented. The analysis utilizes a recently published bounding procedure which yields analytical and continuous bounding functions for the temperature distribution. Several numerical examples are considered. Tabular and graphical results are given. The effects of variable thermal properties and internal heat generation are also shown.
