Abstract: The transient swelling process of polymeric gels is studied and a finite element model is introduced to simulate the phenomena based on existing hyperelastic theory for inhomogeneous swelling of gels and analogies made to transient heat conduction analysis. Examples of free swelling of a cube and a fixed cylinder were investigated, showing the highly non-linear deformation present during transition from the initial state to equilibrium.
