ON THE INFLUENCE OF THE DEFORMATION OF THE FORMING SOLID IN THE SOLIDIFICATION OF A SEMI-INFINITE WATER LAYER OF FLUID Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We use a framework that takes into account the effects of deformation of both the solid and fluid in the solidification process, to study the solidification of a semi-infinite layer of fluid. It is shown that the time required for solidification, and the final location of the interface are significantly different form the predictions of the classical Stefan problem. A detailed numerical solution of the initial-boundary value problem is provided for a variety of values for non-dimensional parameters relevant for freezing water.
