"This problem is concerned with the temperature history of a semi-infinite solid bounded by one flat surface.
Heat was applied by convection from a hot fluid to the flat surface of the solid which was originally at a uniform temperature. Heat was radiated from the flat surface to black space and conducted into the solid according to Fourier's law. The temperature at the surface, and at several points beneath the surface, was determined as a function of time.
A method for solution of such a problem is demonstrated here by the use of numerical analysis and the Royal McBee LGP 30 Digital Computer. The solution is applicable to all similar problems.
The result demonstrates that radiation from the flat surface of the solid is very important because it results in depressing the surface temperature far below that of the hot fluid in contact with its one surface"--Abstract, page iii.
