Abstract
In earlier work, diffusion of moisture through polymer coatings was modeled by using an analytical solution to the diffusion equation and so was only applicable to the simplest cases, e.g. cylindrically symmetric Fickian diffusion. In this work the limitation of the analytical approach is avoided by the use of finite element analysis. However, finite element programs do not usually implement matter diffusion, and therefore it has been modeled by analogy with thermal conduction.
