Diffusion of a fluid through an anisotropic thick spherical shell Academic Article uri icon


  • The problem of radial diffusion of a fluid through a transversely isotropic non-linearly elastic thick spherical shell is studied. The anisotropic shell is also pre-stretched radially. The non-linear equations governing the diffusion through the shell are solved numerically. The effects of the anisotropy of the material and the pre-stretching on the process of diffusion are studied. © 1990 Springer-Verlag.
