### A VARIATIONAL ITERATION METHOD INTEGRAL TRANSFORM TECHNIQUE FOR HANDLING HEAT TRANSFER PROBLEMS

**ABSTRACT**

In this paper, we consider the heat transfer equations at the low excess temperature. The variational iteration method integral transform technique is used to find the approximate solutions for the problems. The used method is accurate and efficient.
