Transient heat conduction in a functionally graded graphite/polymer nanocomposite (FGN) plate is analyzed using finite element method (FEM). Stepwise gradient structure consisted of four different nanocomposite layers with 0, 5, 10 and 20 wt% of graphite. Thermal conductivity and specific heat capacity of the individual layers were determined using C-Therm TCi Thermal Conductivity Analyzer (Canada) in temperature range of -20 to 100 °C. Temperature history and temperature distribution across the thickness of the plate with two different configurations for two positive and negative temperature gradients are presented.
