ONE-DIMENSIONAL HEAT CONDUCTION EQUATION OF THE POLAR BEAR HAIR

ABSTRACT
Hairs of a polar bear (Ursus maritimus) possess special membrane-pore structure. The structure enables the polar bear to survive in the harsh Arctic regions. In this paper, the membrane-pore structure be approximately considered as fractal space, 1-D heat conduction equation of the polar bear hair is established and the solution of the equation is obtained.
