EFFICIENT NUMERICAL TECHNIQUE FOR ONE-DIMENSIONAL THERMAL PROBLEMS WITH PHASE CHANGE

A new numerical scheme for one-dimensional heat flow problems with phase change is presented. The technique, which continuously monitors the progression of the phase interface, is unusual for the high accuracy achieved without sacrifice to computing efficiency. These data are needed by designers of roadways in cold climates for calculating the depth of frost or thaw penetration.
