A novel computational technique is proposed for heat conduction analysis. The heat transfer equation is expanded in the complex frequency domain and solved using the finitedifference method (FDM). The results in the complex frequency domain are transformed into the time domain via fast inverse Laplace transform. In the proposed approach, the instantaneous temperature at a specific time can be easily obtained. Moreover, the computational time for the conventional explicit FDM is reduced by employing the time-division parallel computing method.
