In the paper a mathematical model is developed by using numerical solution to study the non stationary
heat equation in one dimension. This model leads to incorporate a cooling system for a computer radiator.
The result of the model is compared with the stationary heat transfer model. The simulation results show the
performance of non stationary model in terms of variation of temperature.
