Temperature is a typical parameter characterizing the heating level of any particle belonging to a heated body. The basic problem of heat transfer computation is associated with appropriate determination of heat transfer coefficients. This article provides a discussion on the basic equations, initial and boundary conditions, and multiple reflection phenomena of mathematical modeling. These boundary conditions include the Dirichlet, Neumann, and Henkel conditions.
