The aim of the contribution is an analysis of time-fractional heat conduction in a sphere with an inner heat source. The object of the consideration is a solid sphere with a spherical layer. The heat conduction in the solid sphere and spherical layer is governed by fractional heat conduction equation with a Caputo time-derivative. Mathematical (classical) or physical formulations of the Robin boundary condition and the perfect contact of the solid sphere and spherical layer is assumed. The boundary condition and the heat flux continuity condition at the interface are expressed by the Riemann-Liouville derivative. An exact solution of the problem under mathematical conditions is determined. A solution of the problem under physical boundary and continuity conditions using the Laplace transform method has been obtained. The inverse of the Laplace transform by using the Talbot method are numerically determined. Numerical results show the effect of the order of the Caputo and the Riemann-Liouville derivatives on the temperature distribution in the sphere.
Key words: fractional heat conduction / heating source / Robin boundary condition
