This paper presents transient heat conduction analysis of a composite nose cone subjected to aerodynamic heating by a finite element technique in space domain and a finite difference technique in time domain. An anisotropic rectangular ring element with four nodal circles, each having temperature as a degree of freedom, is developed. Application of the finite element technique in space domain results in a set of first-order coupled differential equations in time domain. These are solved by the Crank-Nicholson finite difference scheme. Four test examples are used to validate the development of the element and associated computer program. Practical application of the software developed is demonstrated by application to the problem of a glass-epoxy nose cone subjected to a typical aerodynamic heat input.
