In this paper Finite Volume numerical technique has been used to solve one and two dimensional Steady state heat flow problems with Dirichlet boundary conditions and mixed boundary conditions, respectively. We explained step by step numerical solution procedures with the help of Microsoft excel and TDMA line-by-line solver for the algebraic equations. Finally the numerical solutions obtained by Finite Volume techniques are compared with exact solution to check the accuracy of the developed scheme
