On a two-phase continuous casting Stefan problem with nonlinear flux

  • José Francisco Rodrigues (a1) and Fahuai Yi (a2)

We prove the existence of a weak solution for a two-phase continuous casting Stefan problem with a general monotone nonlinear cooling condition. We establish a sufficient condition for stability, which yields uniqueness and comparison results for the evolutionary and the steady- state solutions. We also discuss the asymptotic behaviour as t←∞ of the corresponding temperatures and enthalpies.
