## Abstract

Multi-layered thin metal film subjected to a short-pulse laser heating is considered. Mathematical description of the process discussed bases on the equation in which there appear the relaxation time and the thermalization time (dual-phase-lag-model). In this study we develop a three level implicit finite difference scheme for numerical modelling of heat transfer in non-homogeneous metal film. At the interfaces an ideal contact between successive layers is assumed. At the stage of computations a solution of only one three-diagonal linear system corresponds to transition from time t to t + Δt. The mathematical model, numerical algorithm and examples of computations are presented in the paper.
