Abstract: The study of heat conduction in multilayered composite bodies is of great interest because of their importance in many engineering applications. Steady state heat conduction in bodies made of different material layers which have different thermal conductivities is governed by elliptic boundary value problem with interfaces. Solution of the corresponding problem is often difficult because of the discontinuity across the interface. In this paper, a mathematical model of such problems has been described and computer simulation of two such problems has been presented using decomposed immersed interface method using MATLAB.
