### THERMAL IMPEDANCE AT THE INTERFACE OF CONTACTING BODIES: 1-D EXAMPLES SOLVED BY SEMI-DERIVATIVES

**ABSTRACT**

Simple 1-D semi-infinite heat conduction problems enable to demonstrate the potential of the fractional calculus in determination of transient thermal impedances of two bodies with different initial temperatures contacting at the interface ( x = 0 ) at t = 0 . The approach is purely analytic and uses only semi-derivatives (half-time) and semi-integrals in the Riemann-Liouville sense. The example solved clearly reveals that the fractional calculus is more effective in calculation the thermal resistances than the entire domain solutions.
