A class of diffusion-stress equations modeling transport of solvent in glassy polymers is considered. The problem is formulated as a one-phase Stefan problem. It is shown that the moving front changes like √t initially but quickly behaves like t as t increases. The behavior is typical of stress-dominated transport. The quasi-steady state approximation is used to analyze the time history of the moving front. This analysis is motivated by the small time solution.
