Abstract

By using the thermomass-theory approach, the temperature in a thin layer heated by a hot spot is derived in steady states. It is shown that an anomalous temperature profile, which seems to be at odds with the fundamental laws of continuum physics, may occur. The compatibility of this situation with second law of thermodynamics is analyzed in view of the concept of flux limiter.
