Abstract: An analytic solution for transient heat transfer in a composite wall subjected to explicit solar radiation and sinusoidal ambient temperature variations on one side and a fluid with constant temperature on the other side, is presented. The solution is obtained in closed form in the Laplace s-domain and is transformed back to the time domain using a series formula. The method provides the transient response which eventually converges to the steady periodic response. Test cases have shown that the method is very accurate, robust and numerically efficient for both transient and steady periodic responses. Case studies are presented to show the utility of the method which provides an efficient alternative to purely numerical treatment.
