The diffusion equation of low molecular weight substances (penetrant) into a coaxial cylinder of multiple components (m) was formulated in general and solved rigorously. As the simplest but a practical case of m = 2, which corresponds to the diffusion of penetrant into fibrous material with skin and core structure, the diffusion of penetrant was analyzed in detail. That is, changes in the penetrant concentration distribution within the coaxial dual cylinder of skin and core components and the total a…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
