Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A moving mesh method is developed for the numerical solution of one-dimensional phase-change problems modelled by the phase-field equations. The computational mesh is obtained by equidistribution of a monitor function tailored for the functional variation of the phase field in the interfacial region. Existence and uniqueness of the discretised equations using a moving mesh are also established. Numerical results are given for classical and modified Stefan test problems. The numerical algorithm is relatively simple and is shown to be far more efficient than fixed grid methods.
