Heat transfer across two surfaces which make and break contact periodically according to a continuous regular cycle is investigated theoretically and exact analytical solutions are developed for the quasi-steady-state temperature distribution for a two-region, one-dimensional, periodically contacting model. The effects of the Biot number, the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of the materials and the duration of contact and break periods on the interface temperature and the temperature distribution within the solids are illustrated with representative temperature charts.
