An averaged isotropic model of nonstationary heat transfer in anisotropic hexagonal-type conductors

Ewaryst Wierzbicki, Urszula Siedlecka
A new macroscopic model for non-stationary heat transfer processes in a periodic hexagonal-type anisotropic rigid conductor is formulated. The main aim of this contribution is to show that the macroscopic properties of such a conductor are transversally isotropic. The tolerance averaging technique as a tool of macroscopic modelling is taken into account.
