Steady conduction equations are solved for two and three-dimensional rectangular bodies with a constant temperature sink and heat applied over a portion of the opposite face. The solutions, with previously published solutions to similar bodies with convective boundary conditions at the sink, are presented as dimensionless resistances in such a way that a designer can easily use them to predict the effect of constriction of flux lines on the overall resistance of the bodies.
