We study numerical approximations of solutions of a heat equation with nonlinear boundary conditions which produce blow-up of the solutions. By a semidiscretization using a finite difference scheme in the space variable we get a system of ordinary differential equations which is an approximation of the original problem. We obtain sufficient conditions which guarantee the blow-up solution of this system in a finite time. We also show that this blow-up time converges to the theoretical one when the mesh size goes to zero. We present some numerical results to illustrate certain point of our work.
