Recent developments in non-Fickian diffusion: a new look at viscoelastic materials

Gudiño, Elias

PhD in Mathematics, Universidade de Coimbra, 2014

The aim of this dissertation is to fully understand from a mathematical point of view the two coupled processes of sorption of a fluid by a viscoelastic material and the successive or simultaneous desorption of the fluid with solved molecules of a chemical compound which is dispersed in the material. These two coupled processes have a central role in several areas of Life Sciences and Material Sciences namely in Controlled Drug Delivery.
