Transient heat conduction in semi-infinite medium with a power-law time-dependent boundary conditions has been solved by an integral-balance integral method applying to a semi-derivative approach. Two versions of the integral-balance method have been applied: Goodman’s method with a generalized parabolic profile and Zien’s method with exponential (original and modified) profile.
