It has been realized in recent years that Fourier law is applicable only to the problems that involve large spatial dimension and when the focus is on long time behaviour. However, it yields unacceptable results in situations involving temperature near absolute zero, extreme thermal gradients, high heat flux conduction and short time behaviour, such as laser-material interactions. Hence, intense efforts are put forth since 1950s to better understand the limitations of Fourier law and for more accurate predictions of temperature. Accordingly, some non-Fourier heat conduction models accounting for finite speed of heat propagation are proposed and they have became the centre of active research for last few decades. However, it is believed that there are mathematical/physical issues and challenges with these Non-Fourier heat conduction models.  Heat conduction equation plays a very important role in coupled thermo-mechanical and bio-thermo-mechanical problems.  Mathematical modelling on these problems is worth pursuing in order to understand the effects of non-Fourier heat conduction models on coupled thermo-mechanical interactions.
