Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present a brief overview of the physical and numerical problems associated with the modelling of solid-liquid phase change in binary systems. The main recent advances are presented, and the currently open problems in the field are listed. 1 Introduction The study of heat and mass transfer related to solid-liquid phase change processes is of primary importance in a number of theoretical problems and practical applications. Phase change of pure substances has been extensively studied in the past : due to the non-linearity of the Stefan problem, the relevance of developing specific mathematical and/or numerical procedures for the solution of this moving boundary problem has induced a huge number of studies. Recent reviews are available
