The transient response of a fin of constant area of cross section and perimeter, with its end insulated, is analyzed using Laplace transforms. Solutions are developed for small and large values of times when the base is subjected to a step change in temperature or heat flux. Fins with base subjected to sinusoidal temperature or heat flux are also analyzed. Typical results are represented in graphical form.
