We have numerically solved the nonlinear thermal conductivity equation using temperature-dependent thermal coefficients to study the evolution of the temperature profile produced in a metal irradiated by a high-current ion beam. We studied the propagation of the thermal front and the heating rate of the metal surface as functions of ion beam characteristics. We determined the dependence of the maximum heating temperature and penetration depth on the maximum value of the ion beam current.
