Boundary Element Methods for Heat Transfer with Phase Change Problems

Theory and Application

Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

The mathematical modelling of free and moving boundary problems are an important topic in engineering, industry, technology and theoretical sciences. These models allow us to make calculations involved in phase change transitions of materials due to heat transfer. Boundary layer applications are widespread in research and industry. Boundary Element Methods for Heat Transfer with Phase Change Problems: Theory and Application equips the reader with information about heat transfer problems occurring during phase changes. The book “Boundary Element Methods for Heat Transfer with Phase Change Problems: Theory and Application” covers several boundary element methods, including methods for phase changes, fixed and moving domains and new approaches. The contents are rounded off with chapters on numerical results and industrial applications. Key features: - Simple, didactic presentation of boundary layer problems for heat transfer problems - Covers a wide range of boundary element methods - Includes methods for fixed and moving domains - Explains industrial applications of the methods - Includes solutions to numerical problems The book serves as a textbook for students of advanced mathematics and engineering. It is also a handbook for researchers working on numerical analysis, who require a focused volume on boundary element methods for heat transfer applications.


The book will be excellent to all whom working in the field of numerical analysis, advanced topics, wide range of applied and industrial problems, all under and Postgraduate students.
