Introduction. Although several problems of heat flow in composite cylinders have been studied, all the cases considered treat the heat flow in the radial direction only [1, 2, 3] . The case of combined radial and axial heat flow in composite cylinders presents an interesting boundary value problem which has also considerable significance in the theory of vibrations and propagation of electromagnetic waves [4, 5, 6] . In this paper, we consider a case of combined radial and axial heat flow in

The temperature distribution in the cylinder at any instant under the assumed boundary and initial conditions has been obtained by the use of the Laplace transformation. The procedure is illustrated by a numerical calculation in a particular case. The Problem. Composite cylinder made of two different materials, the inner cylinder 0 < r < a and the outer cylinder a < r 0 (see Fig. 1 ).
