about this item
The Classical Stefan Problem: Basic Concepts, Modeling and Analysis with Quasi-Analytical Solutions and Methods, Second Edition provides the fundamental theory, concepts, modeling and analysis of the physical, mathematical, thermodynamical and metallurgical properties of classical Stefan and Stefan-like problems as applied to heat transfer problems with phase-changes, such as from liquid to solid. This self-contained work reports and derives the results from tensor analysis, differential geometry, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, physics and functional analysis, and is thoroughly enriched with many references for in-depth background reading on theorems. The book aims to bridge the gap between theory and solutions for the afore-mentioned problems.
Each chapter in this fully revised and updated edition begins with basic concepts and objectives, including direction on how the subject matter was developed. It contains more than 400 pages of new material on quasi-analytical solutions and methods of classical Stefan and Stefan-like problems.
- Provides both the phenomenology and mathematics of Stefan problems
- Bridges physics and mathematics in a concrete and readable manner
- Presents well-organized chapters that start with proper definitions followed by explanations and references for further reading
- Includes both numerical and quasi-analytical solutions and methods of classical Stefan and Stefan-like problems
