This paper provides analytical solutions for heat conduction in composites of infinite, semi-infinite, and finite laminates in unsteady, periodic, and steady states. For compactness and generality, Green’s functions are used. The method of analysis applies for composites of any number of layers, but only solutions for two material composites are presented in this paper. Some calculated results of an example in steady and periodic states are shown and discussed.
