Stationary and Time-Dependent Phase Changes

Part of the Modeling and Simulation in Science, Engineering and Technology book series (MSSET)


In the preceding chapter we used the model of a continuous system with a nonmaterial interface to analyze some phase equilibrium problems. In this chapter we show that it is possible to describe some stationary and timedependent phase changes by again adopting suitable models of a continuous system with a nonmaterial interface.
