The Stefan Problem
- 315 Downloads
The Stefan model of phase transition in solid-liquid systems is introduced. This accounts for heat diffusion in each phase and exchange of latent heat at the solid-liquid interface. Its strong formulation is a free boundary problem, since the interface evolution is a priori unknown. Formulations in one and in several space dimensions are derived.
