Analytical solution of a one-dimensional thermistor problem with Robin boundary condition

Volodymyr Hrynkiv and Alice Turchaninova

Vol. 12 (2019), No. 1, 79–88
Abstract

A one-dimensional nonlinear heat conduction equation of steady-state Joule heating in the presence of an electric field in a metal with temperature-dependent conductivities is considered. A technique developed by Young (1986) is adapted and used to derive an analytical solution for the problem with a Robin boundary condition.
