Introduction

There are many important problems on the conduction of heat in granular powder beds, i.e. silo beds, coal beds, high furnace in steel making, compaction of powder in ceramics industry, etc. The mathematical treatise on these problems, however, is not necessarily clear, because the correct physical model is not considered. In this report it is theoretically considered.
