Diffusion / Conduction Simulator
Virtual laboratory where students can set up a variety of 2-D non-steady state "diffusion" problems in heat and mass transfer and watch how concentration / temperature develops over time. Define initial concentrations, regions of constant concentration, regions of high, low , and zero diffusivity to visualize initial and boundary conditions.
