Figure 2.11: Spatial variation of the temperature for the half-space material with a harmonic change of temperature. The temperature oscillation ‘travels’ into the interior of the material with decreasing amplitude and increasing time delay. Note that the second dot is always delayed for T/4 against the first dot, and the third point for T/2 against the first dot.
