The Classical Stefan Problem: Basic Concepts, Modelling and Analysis with Quasi-Analytical Solutions and Methods, New 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 appropriate references for in-depth background reading on theorems. Each chapter in this fully revised and updated edition begins with basic concepts and objectives, also 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.The book aims to bridge the gap between the theoretical and solution aspects of the afore-mentioned 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
