A Deterministic PDE Model describing
POLYMER CRYSTALLIZATION PROCESSES
The modelA cooling object is applied to the side (single cooling) or both sides (double cooling) of a polymer melt. If the applied temperature is

The Stefan problem formulationThe crystallization band can be identified to a free boundary whose time-evolution obeys a Stefan equation.
