**Q1**
Confirm/predict the velocity of the propagation front
(heat transport) and its relation with Peclet number at different
time steps.

**Q2**
How is Peclet number influencing the average
temperature computed as output? What about the thickness of the
plastic layer?

**Q3**
It is a useful exercise to try to estimate the behavior
of the system in the "steady state" and its solution at regime.
Is there a difference between the plastic and fluid (air)
zones? Have the different conductivity coefficients in the two
zones any effect?
