Abstract:

By extension from our previous work on so called Case 2 diffusion, models have been developed to account for several kinds of anomalous non-Fickian diffusion. We have applied them to various problems arising from the uses of certain modern polymeric materials in novel applications in pharmaceutical devices, separating membranes for controlled gaseous and liquid mixing, and methods of adhesive bonding. In addition to the formulation in which important parameter groupings were identified analytical, asymptotic, and numerical methods were modified or devised to study the problems. Diffusion, Semi- conductors, Polymers, Bifurcation.
