The paper describes the development and applicability of a generalized Virtual-Pulse (VIP) time integral method of computation for thermal problems. Unlike past approaches for general heat transfer computations, and with the advent of high speed computing technology and the importance of parallel computations for efficient use of computing environments, a major motivation via the developments described in this paper is the need for developing explicit computational procedures with improved accuracy and stability characteristics. As a consequence, a new and effective VIP methodology is described which inherits these improved characteristics. Numerical illustrative examples are provided to demonstrate the developments and validate the results obtained for thermal problems.
