F. Campos Velho the nodal equations. The Hermite schemes are also compared with the temperature on the boundary, in which it is expressed as the temperature average. 2 Nodal Method in Multi-layer Heat Conduction The heat equation is considered in the parallel multi-layer problem under the assumption of a perfect thermal contact along the interfaces x = xi , i = 2, 3, . . , n. Each layer i is considered homogenous, isotropic, and as having constant thermal properties (ρi , cpi , and ki ). Initially, each layer has temperature Ti (x, y, 0) = Fi (x, y) at xi < x < xi+1 and y1 < y < y2 for i = 1, 2, 3, .

This feature can be reached during the modeling process (simpliﬁed models) concerning a particular application. For example, when designing a chamber, the focus is on the minimization of temperature changes (insulated room).
