The thermal response of a one-dimensional plane wall to sequential heating and cooling is considered. Of interest is the thermal response at the midplane of the wall in terms of the extreme temperatures that evolve after heating subsides. Correlations are generated to estimate the extreme temperatures and the times at which they occur.
