Semi-discrete Error Estimates and Implementation of a Mixed Method for the Stefan Problem

We analyze a dual formulation and finite element method for simulating the Stefan problem with surface tension (originally presented in [C.B. Davis and S.W. Walker, Int. Free Bound. 17 (2015) 427–464]). The method uses a mixed form of the heat equation in the solid and liquid (bulk) domains, and imposes a weak formulation of the interface motion law (on the… CONTINUE READING
