The method of fundamental solutions for free surface Stefan problems

S. Chantasiriwan, B.T. Johansson, Daniel Lesnic

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, free surface problems of Stefan-type for the parabolic heat equation are investigated using the method of fundamental solutions. The additional measurement necessary to determine the free surface could be a boundary temperature, a heat flux or an energy measurement. Both one- and two-phase flows are investigated. Numerical results are presented and discussed.
