Despite significant efforts examining the suitability of the proper form of the heat transfer partial differential equation (PDE) as a function of the time scale of interest (e.g. seconds, picoseconds, femtoseconds, etc.), very little work has been done to investigate the millisecond-microsecond regime. This paper examines the differences between the parabolic and one of the hyber-bolic forms of the heat conduction PDE that govern the thermal energy conservation on these intermediate timescales. Emphasis is given to the types of problems where relatively fast heat flux deposition is realized. Specifically, the classical parabolic form is contrasted against the lesser known Cattaneo-Vernotte hyperbolic form. A comparative study of the behavior of these forms over various pulsed conditions are applied at the center of a rectangular plate. Further emphasis is given to the variability of the solutions subject to constant or temperature-dependent thermal properties. Additionally, two materials, Al-6061 and refractory Nb1Zr, with widely varying thermal properties, were investigated.
