Abstract—In this paper, an exact solution of steady heat conduction from a hot donut (a torus) placed in an infinite medium of constant temperature is obtained. The governing energy equation is recast in a naturally-fit coordinates system and then solved using toroidal basis functions.
Index Terms—Donuts, heat conduction, toroidal coordinates
