Abstract

A simple level set method for solving Stefan problems is presented. This method can be applied to problems involving dendritic solidiication. Our method consists of an implicit nite diierence scheme for solving the heat equation and a level set approach for capturing the front between solid and liquid phases of a pure substance. Our method is accurate with… (More)
