Amplitude and phase lag of temperature oscillations in a slab subjected to a harmonic heat flux are presented, by solving the hyperbolic heat conduction equation. Examples show how to obtain the temperature oscillations in any desired location for specified parameters. The results can be obtained for any other values of the parameters since this paper is a Mathematica notebook [1]. The plots demonstrate the resonance phenomena and that increasing the relaxation time decreases the damping of temperature amplitude.
