Minisymposium: Moving Boundary Problems in Industrial Applications

  • Brendan J. Florio
Conference paper
Part of the Mathematics in Industry book series (MATHINDUSTRY, volume 26)


Moving boundary problems appear in the modelling of a variety of physical processes including phase-change (melting and solidification) and the dissolution of a solid in a solvent and fluid dynamics. Due to this broad scope, we see moving boundary problems in many industrial applications including (but not limited to) metal-casting, nanotechnology and pharmacology. Here we presented a collection of studies from these diverse fields and we highlight various analytical and numerical techniques.
