## Boundary Element Method for 2 Layer Heat conduction

Hi there,

I'm trying to solve this heat conduction problem using boundary element methods. The problem involves a circle that is cut into half, with each having its own thermal conductivity (k). I'm required to determine the temperature field for both these halfs so that i can find the temperatures at any given point within the region.

I managed to do the one for a homogeneous material but faced problems with this case. There was this eqn i saw from an article that involved the combination of regions :

HU = GQ

I understand the approach would be to solve one half of the circle at a time. But i don't understand how to include the boundary conditions at the interface btwn both the halves. And to solve the matrices. Help anyone?
