The oxygen diffusion problem: Analysis and numerical solution
2015 (English)In: Applied Mathematical Modelling, ISSN 0307-904X, E-ISSN 1872-8480, Vol. 39, no 9, 2763-2776 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A recently derived numerical algorithm for one-dimensional time-dependent Stefan problems is applied to the classical moving boundary problem that arises from the diffusion of oxygen in absorbing tissue; in tandem with the Keller box finite-difference scheme, the so-called boundary immobilization method is used. New insights are obtained into three aspects of the problem: the numerical accuracy of the scheme used; the calculation of oxygen depletion time; and the behaviour of the moving boundary as the oxygen is depleted.
