This paper presents the transmission matrix and frequency characteristics of transient heat conduction through a multilayer cylindrical structure. The frequency-domain regression method [Appl. Thermal Eng. 21 (6) (2000) 683] is introduced to estimate some simple polynomial s-transfer functions from the frequency characteristics and further calculate the transient heat flow of the cylindrical structure including its thermal response factors and Z-conduction transfer function coefficients. The calculation examples and comparisons have fully demonstrated that the developed procedure is not only easy and simple, but also has high computation accuracy and efficiency.
