Dear experts:
I would to solve and plot a 1D heat transfer for a pavement. My for loops aren't working properly, I have the matlab file attached here. Can someone helps with the for loops, please?
Your help will be greatly appriciated!

"Can you help write a MATLAB CODE for solve and plot the equations?"
No, MATLAB Answers is not a homeworking solving service. If you want help from the forum, make an effort to write code, then ask where you are having difficulty.
If you aren't sure where to start because you're not familiar with how to write MATLAB code, I suggest you start with the free MATLAB Onramp tutorial to learn the essentials of MATLAB.

@Dyuman Joshi is exactly correct (as usual :) ).
Hint: You have derivatives involving two variables: time and position. One way you could do this problem is by writing nested for loops: an outer loop over time, and an inner loop over position. Good luck.

Thank you, Dyuman.
I tried to aproximate the temperature using finite difference method but my for loops didn't work. Could you check my code, please?
