We obtain the existence of global strong solution to the free boundary problem in 1D compressible Navier-Stokes system for the viscous and heat conducting ideal polytropic gas flow, when the heat conductivity depends on temperature in power law of Chapman-Enskog and the viscosity coefficient be a positive constant.

The existence of a global weak solution to the Cauchy problem for a one-dimensional Camassa-Holm equation is established. In this paper, we assume that the initial condition $u_0(x)$ has end states $u_{\pm}$, which has much weaker constraints than that $u_0(x) \in H^1(\mathbb R)$ discussed in [30]. By perturbing the Cauchy problem around a rarefaction wave, we obtain a global weak solution as a limit of viscous approximation under the assumption $u_- < u_+$.

In this paper, we study the zero dissipation limit toward rarefaction waves for solutions to a one-dimensional compressible non-Newtonian fluid for general initial data, whose far fields are connected by a rarefaction wave to the corresponding Euler equations with one end state being vacuum. Given a rarefaction wave with one-side vacuum state to the compressible Euler equations, we construct a sequence of solutions to the one-dimensional compressible non-Newtonian fluid which converge to the above rarefaction wave with vacuum as the viscosity coefficient $\epsilon$ tends to zero. Moreover, the uniform convergence rate is obtained, based on one fact that the viscosity constant can control the degeneracies caused by the vacuum in rarefaction waves and another fact that the energy estimates are obtained under some a priori assumption.

In this paper, we obtain the global weak solution to the 3D spherically symmetric compressible isentropic Navier-Stokes equations with arbitrarily large, vacuum data and free boundary when the shear viscosity $\mu$ is a positive constant and the bulk viscosity $\lambda(\rho)=\rho^\beta$ with $\beta>0$. The analysis of the upper and lower bound of the density is based on some well-chosen functionals. In addition, the free boundary can be shown to expand outward at an algebraic rate in time.
