On a thermodynamically consistent Stefan problem with variable surface energy

Simonett, G (Vanderbilt University)
Thursday 26 June 2014, 16:30-17:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


A thermodynamically consistent two-phase Stefan problem with temperature dependent surface tension is studied. It is shown that this problem generates a local semiflow on a well-defined state manifold. Moreover, stability and instability results of equilibrium configurations will be presented. It will be pointed out that surface heat capacity has a striking effect on the stability behavior of multiple equilibria.
