In this paper, the two-dimensional inverse heat conduction problem governed by the equation with the non-homogeneous term and unknown Neumann boundary condition will be considered, this problem can be divided into two separate problems, which are direct and inverse parabolic problems, finite difference method and finite volume method combined with weight coefficient method are used to solve these two problems, based on the overspecified data, and numerical example will also be presented.
