Special Splines of Hyperbolic Type for the Solutions of Heat and Mass Transfer 3-D Problems in Porous Multi-Layered Axial Symmetry Domain
In this paper we study the problem of the diffusion of one substance through the pores of a porous multi layered material which may absorb and immobilize some of the diffusing substances with the evolution or absorption of heat. As an example we consider circular cross section wood-block with two layers in the radial direction. We consider the transfer of heat process. We derive the system of two partial differential equations (PDEs) - one expressing the rate of change of concentration of water vapour in the air spaces and the other - the rate of change of temperature in every layer. The approximation of corresponding initial boundary value problem of the system of PDEs is based on the conservative averaging method (CAM) with special integral splines. This procedure allows reduce the 3-D axis-symmetrical transfer problem in multi-layered domain described by a system of PDEs to initial value problem for a system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) of the first order.
