An analysis of the temperature distribution of straight and circular fins with stochastic root temperature is presented. The response autocorrelation functions and power spectral densities of temperatures with stationary Gaussian excitation temperatures are obtained. These excitations include purely stochastic and Markoff processes. Several numerical examples are studied. Graphical results are given. The convergence problem in computational experiments is found to be not very severe.
