Ultimately, it is irrelevant which boundary conditions for the temperature are used for determining the conductances;​ however, it is recommended that those should be used which will be needed later on for determining the surface temperatures. The lower part of the illustration shows the calculation of the conductance $L_{2d}$, this results from the heat flow calculated using the heat flow software program.
