Boundary effects in stokes' problem with melting

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We discuss the use of the computer algebra system Maple ® to analyze the heat transport when a heated sphere melts its way through a solid medium. The combined power of symbolic computation and numerical simulation available in Maple is used to analyze a model in which the molten layer around the moving sphere is augmented by a surrounding thermal-layer. In particular, we carefully study the effects of imposing a variety of boundary conditions.
