The conformable heat equation is defined in terms of a local and limit-based definition called conformable derivative which provides some basic properties of integer order derivative such that conventional fractional derivatives lose some of them due to their non-local structures. In this paper, we aim to find the fundamental solution of a conformable heat equation acting on a radial symmetric plate. Moreover, we give a comparison between the new conformable and the existing Grunwald-Letnikov solutions of heat equation. The computational results show that conformable formulation is quite successful to show the sub-behaviors of heat process. In addition, conformable solution can be obtained by a analytical method without the need of a numerical scheme and any restrictions on the problem formulation. This is surely a significant advantageous compared to the Grunwald-Letnikov solution.
