In this paper we present a critical comparison of the suitability of several numerical methods, level set, moving grid and phase field model, to address two well known Stefan problems in phase transformation studies: melting of a pure phase and diffusional solid state phase transformations in a binary system. Similarity solutions are applied to verify the numerical results. The comparison shows that the type of phase transformation considered determines the convenience of the numerical… CONTINUE READING
