Modeling Multidimensional Systems

  • John J. Wormeck


The material presented in earlier chapters has focused on theoretical conservation equations, phenomenological laws, and development of various models. In this chapter, many of these components will be systematically organized into what will be called the generalized model. The numerical algorithms of each component will be outlined and the overall strategy required to obtain a solution will be discussed.
