We investigate an application of the method of fundamental solutions (MFS) to heat conduction in two-dimensional bodies, where the thermal diffusivity is piecewise constant. We extend the MFS proposed in Johansson and Lesnic [A method of fundamental solutions for transient heat conduction, Eng. Anal. Bound. Elem. 32 (2008), pp. 697-703] for one-dimensional heat conduction with the sources placed outside the space domain of interest, to the two-dimensional setting. Theoretical properties of the method, as well as numerical investigations, are included, showing that accurate results can be obtained efficiently with small computational cost.
