Material thermal properties are temperature dependent, and this effect cannot be disregarded at elevated design temperatures. Based upon the principle of equivalent linearization, analytical solutions are developed for thermally symmetric planar solids. The solution method is, in turn, extended to a composite wall whose individual thermal conductivities are also temperature dependent. As a demonstration of the method’s accuracy several numerical examples are shown.
