This page calculates the isothermal (constant temperature) embedded rectangular volume temperature (Tb) and the shape factor (sf) of a rectangular volume embedded in a semi-infinite medium having isothermal surface.

Define the rectangular volume's width, length, height, depth, and the heat flow, as well as the conductivity and the isothermal temperature applied to the medium surrounding the rectangular box. This page will calculate the rectangular box temperature and the corresponding shape factor.
