In this paper, a finite elment-eigenvalue method is formulated to solve the finite element models of time dependent temperature field problems in non-homogeneous materials such as functionally graded materials (FGMs). The method formulates an eigenvalue problem from the original finite element model and proceeds to calculate the associated eigenvectors from which the solution can be obtained. The results obtained highly accurate and are exponential functions of time which when compared with the exact solution tended fast to the steady state solution.
