Abstract

Phase change problems with natural convection in the liquid phase are of prime importance in accurate technological applications. In this work a melting of pure gallium in a rectangular cavity heated from the left wall is simulated using the finite difference method. Numerical algorithm based on dimensionless variables stream function and vorticity has been checked by experimental data of previously published papers. The effect of the grid size on results of calculations was identified. Motion of phase front and changing parameters of heat and masstransfer were studied.
