### Re: phase change references

a few more have come up. the following provides a summary of the three methods with some references others can follow: Pham, Q. T. "Comparison of general-purpose finite-element methods for the Stefan problem." Numerical Heat Transfer 27.4 (1995): 417-435. http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewd...

### Re: phase change references

I apparently need to reread some of my old posts: http://www.elmerfem.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=7624#p7624 "Spatial 2, sqrt((delH.delH)/(delT.delT)), I've seen referred to as the Lemmon scheme [1]... Lemmon, E.C., “Multidimensional integral phase change approximations for finite element conduct...

### phase change references

Wondering if anyone with a good archive might have academic references to the models used for the "Spatial 1", "Spatial 2", and "Temporal" forms of effective heat capacity approximation given in the models manual. Or maybe a good memory of which papers might have descri...

### Re: Heat solve with phase change - additive enthalpy and capacity?

OK, thanks for the clarification. At least I know I didn’t screw up all of the other simulations. Just to clarify, if I had some reason to want to separately prescribe heat capacity and enthalpy to capture phase change, enthalpy would just be the excess energy profile In the melting zone above that ...

### Heat solve with phase change - additive enthalpy and capacity?

I for the first time took note of a statement in the Heat Equation docs stating: "Note that for the current implementation of the heat equation heat capacity and enthalpy are additive. So if heat capacity is present in the command file it should not be incorporated to enthalpy as an integral.&q...

### Re: Solid-liquid phase change

In previous discussion the transient phase change solver required the inclusion of both Enthalpy and Effective Heat Capacity due to an issue getting transient enthalpy in the first time step. See discussion here: http://www.elmerfem.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2345 I have been doing this exclu...

Is the preferred bug reporting method a post in this forum or an email to elmeradm@csc.fi ?

### Re: Windows update is not nightly

That came up earlier in the year. It seems the build system is not producing automatic builds anymore.

### Re: SaveLine, first two points are always in reverse order?

what do you mean by serial cases? do you mean cases where the saveline moves along a continuous set of nodes in index order? the answer is 'sometimes'? i have 'numbering horizontal' on in my grd file. here's a case where I'm grabbing the topmost set of nodes (on boundary 1) from left to right, and i...

### SaveLine, first two points are always in reverse order?

Whenever calling the SaveLine using polyline coordinates, i noticed that the first two points in the output are always in reverse order. example, calling the solver as: Solver 2 Equation = String "SaveLine" Exec Solver = String "After Simulation" Procedure = File "SaveData&q...
