A mathematical model for the mechanical etching of glass

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


A nonlinear first-order PDE describing the displacement of a glass surface subject to solid particle erosion is presented. The analytical solution is derived by means of the method of characteristics. Alternatively, the Engquist-Osher scheme is applied to compute a numerical solution.
