Case T→P

Case T→P is a further step towards the full set of coupled equations. The link from heat transfer on the pressure equation is present due to the increase of volume due to wate phase change but no motion of water is considered. Another control is that no geometrical change is considered in the present case (no frost heaving).

The experiment is ongoing. The results will be released for participants to test their codes.
