Heat transfer equation solution for a model georeactor (source ~ 2nd order temperature dependence,  J/(cm3·s·K2)); initial and boundary temperatures equal to 6000 K; fissile medium is a cube 10 × 10 × 10 m. The presented results correspond to the following times of temperature field evolution: (a) (1–10) · 10−7 s, (b) 10−6 s, (c) 0.5 s, and (d) 50 s.
