A mathematical model of carbon capture by adsorption
Font Martínez, Francesc; Myers, Timothy; Hennessy, Matthew G. (20210802)
Part of book or chapter of book
Restricted access  publisher's policyWe present a model to describe the capture of carbon by an adsorbing porous material occupying a circular crosssection column. The model consists of an advectionreactiondiffusion equation for the gas concentration coupled ... 
A onephase Stefan problem with sizedependent thermal conductivity
Font Martínez, Francesc (20180702)
Article
Open AccessIn this paper a onephase Stefan problem with sizedependent thermal conductivity is analysed. Approximate solutions to the problem are found via perturbation and numerical methods, and compared to the Neumann solution for ...

Beyond the classical Stefan problem
Font Martínez, Francesc (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 20140718)
Doctoral thesis
Open AccessIn this thesis we develop and analyse mathematical models describing phase change phenomena linked with novel technological applications. The models are based on modifications to standard phase change theory. The mathematical ... 
How cortical waves drive fission of motile cells
Flemming, Sven; Font Martínez, Francesc; Alonso Muñoz, Sergio; Beta, Carsten (20200324)
Article
Open AccessCytokinesis—the division of a cell into two daughter cells—is a key step in cell growth and proliferation. It typically occurs in synchrony with the cell cycle to ensure that a complete copy of the genetic information is ... 
Magnetic nanodrug delivery in nonNewtonian blood flows
Fanelli, Claudia; Kaouri, Katerina; Phillips, Tim; Myers, Timothy G.; Font Martínez, Francesc (20220904)
Article
Open AccessWith the goal of determining strategies to maximise drug delivery to a specific site in the body, we developed a mathematical model for the transport of drug nanocarriers (nanoparticles) in the bloodstream under the influence ... 
Mass transfer from a fluid flowing through a porous media
Myers, Timothy; Font Martínez, Francesc (20201201)
Article
Open AccessA mathematical model is developed for the process of mass transfer from a fluid flowing through a packed column. Mass loss, whether by absorption or adsorption, may be significant. This is appropriate for example when ... 
Mathematical modelling of carbon capture in a packed column by adsorption
Myers, Timothy; Font Martínez, Francesc; Hennessy, Matthew G. (202011)
Article
Open AccessA mathematical model of the process of carbon capture in a packed column by adsorption is developed and analysed. First a detailed study is made of the governing equations. Due to the complexity of the internal geometry ... 
Mathematical modelling of fibre coating
Aguareles Carrero, María; Font Martínez, Francesc; Myers, Timothy; Ripoll, Jordi (20210108)
Research report
Open AccessIn this report we formulate and analyse a mathematical model describing the evo lution of a thin liquid film coating a wire via an extrusion process. We consider the NavierStokes equations for a 2D incompressible Newtonian ... 
Memory and nonlocal effects of heat transport in a spherical nanoparticle
Font Martínez, Francesc (Institute of Physics (IOP), 20211101)
Article
Open AccessIn this paper a mathematical model describing the heat transport in a spherical nanoparticle subject to Newton heating at its surface is presented. The governing equations involve a phonon hydrodynamic equation for the ... 
Modelling mass transfer from a packed bed by fluid extraction
Myers, Timothy; Valverde Salamanca, Abel; Aguareles Carrero, María; Calvo Schwarzwälder, Marc; Font Martínez, Francesc (20220601)
Article
Open AccessA mathematical model describing the erosion or leaching of a solid material by a flowing fluid in a column is developed. This involves an advectiondiffusion equation coupled to a linear kinetic reaction describing the ... 
Modelling nanocrystal growth via the precipitation method
Fanelli, Claudia; Cregan, V.; Font Martínez, Francesc; Myers, Timothy (20210201)
Article
Open AccessA mathematical model for the growth of a single nanocrystal is generalised to deal with an arbitrarily large number of crystals. The basic model is a form of Stefan problem, describing diffusion of monomer over a moving ...
