Abstract

The temperature distribution influences the amount of energy needed to heat a body. The benefits of using multi-layered metal plates (NIMP) are due to the requirement of a regular temperature distribution on the opposite side with one side heated irregularly. The factors that affect the regular distribution of the temperature in such a structure are the thickness of the layers and the materials themselves, since for different materials, heat conduction coefficients, density and specific heat values change.
