Contact Melting (melting of a solid under its own weight)
Governing Equations (Neumann problem ):
Choose ∆t and ∆x to meet Neumann’s stability criterion
Determine the initial enthalpy at every node hjo (j = 1)
Calculate the enthalpy after the first time step at nodes (j = 2 ,..., N -1) by using equation (1).
Determine the temperature after the first time step at node (j = 1 ,..., N) by using equations (2) and (3).
Find a control volume in which the enthalpy falls between 0 and hsl , and determine the location of the solid-liquid interface by using equation (4).
Solve the phase-change problem at the next time step with the same procedure.
Unconditionally stable but is more complex because two unknown variables enthalpy and temperature are involved.
