I'm working on solving coupled PDEs (mass diffusion - heat transfer - continuum mechanics) in problems where the solution domain changes depending on the solution (call it an intrinsic coupling if you will). This happens either due to addition of material to the domain or damage of the domain and becomes quite tricky to handle numerically. The applications are nonlinear so anything other than numerical is out of the question. I've typically solved the problems using FEM with Femlab, but was wondering whether there might be any other robust tools available ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks,
