Gelfand type problem for two phase porous media (ENGLISH)
[ 講演概要 ]
In this talk I will introduce a generalization of well known Gelfand problem arising in a Frank-Kamenetskii theory of thermal explosion. This generalization is a natural extension of the Gelfand problem to two phase materials, where, in contrast to classical Gelfand problem which utilizes single temperature approach, the state of the system is described by two different temperatures. As a result the problem is modeled by a system of two coupled nonlinear heat equations. The new ingredient in such a generalized Gelfand problem is a presence of inter-phase heat exchange which can be viewed as a strength of coupling for the system.

I will show that similar to classical Gelfand problem the thermal explosion (blow up of solution) for generalized Gelfand problem occurs exclusively due to the absence of stationary temperature distribution, that is non-existence of solution of corresponding elliptic problem. I also will show that the presence of inter-phase heat exchange delays a thermal explosion. Moreover, in the limit of infinite heat exchange between phases the problem of thermal explosion in two phase porous media reduces to classical Gelfand problem with re-normalized constants. The latter result partially justifies a single temperature approach to two phase systems often used in a physical literature.

This is a joint work with Vitaly Moroz (Swansea University).
