A new numerical method [1], which combines the dual reciprocity boundary element method with Laplace transforms, has been used to solve ultrafast heat conduction problems. By this method, the time micro scale heat transfer problems applied different extreme high frequency temperature and heat flux pulses (the width of a single pulse is less than 10−12 s) on the boundary are simulated in this paper. Numerical results open out some phenomena of non-Fourier heat conduction. “Thermal accumulation (TA)” as a typical phenomenon of non-Fourier heat conduction takes on different characteristics under different pulsed conditions. The pulse time-width has important effect on the non-Fourier characteristics for single pulse, while different pulse periods for seriate pulse make obvious different non-Fourier characteristics.
