Abstract

This paper describes a primitive variable boundary integral equation solu- tion of the free boundary problem arising in the steady natural convection of the incompressible Newtonian solid-liquid phase change material. Solution of the coupled mass, momentum, and energy equations in two-dimensions is structured by the fundamental solution of the Laplace equation, straight line geometry and discontinuous linear field boundary elements. The involved domain integrals are treated through the dual reciprocity transformation based on the scaled augmented thin plate splines. 1 Introduction and Motivation Various aspects of science and technology are nowadays related to modelling of the solid-liquid phase change systems.
