In this study, an analytical solution is presented for the conductive heat transfer of a plate made of composite materials at stable conditions with energy generation and radiation flux within the composite plate. The proposed exact solution is useful for studying heat transfer in tanks and composite panels. In addition, the coefficient of thermal conductivity tensor for composite materials is introduced and a method for determining the coefficient based on the properties of the matrix is introduced. The heat transfer equation in the Cartesian coordinate system for composite materials is obtained when the fibers in each layer are wrapped around the plate. Then, using the method of separating the variables, an exact solution for this equation is presented under certain boundary conditions.
