A new analytical solution to the problem of wave heat transfer in the orthotropic half-space under the action of a time-dependent point heat flux is obtained and studied. The heat transfer is described by a hyperbolic heat conduction wave equation, in which the directions of the thermal conductivity coincide with the Cartesian coordinate system axes (the orthotropic solid). The obtained analytical solution has allowed us to trace the behavior of the point temperature profile in the vicinity of the initial time moment during a number of relaxation times, which is impossible to do when the classical parabolic heat conduction equation is used.
