A meshless numerical model is developed for analyzing transient heat conduction in non-homogeneous functionally graded materials (FGM) which has a continuously functionally graded thermal conductivity parameter. First the analog equation method is used to transform the original non-homogeneous problem into an equivalent homogeneous one at any given time so that a simpler fundamental solution can be employed to take the place of the one related to the original problem. Next the approximate...[Show more]
