Abstract: Abstract Spherulitic crystallization presents an inverse Stefan problem, which is solved by numerical methods using the DuFort‐Frankel scheme and Lagrangian coordinate systems. The numerical solution shows excellent agreement with the analytical solution in the Cartesian coordinate system. A systematic error in the numerical solution for the spherical and cylindrical coordinate systems is examined by a material balance for the system. The systematic error was found to decrease rapidly as the dimensionless tim…
