Melting and solidification problems occur in numerous important areas of
science, engineering and industry.
For example, freezing and thawing of
foods, production of ice, ice formation on pipe surface, solidification of steel
and chemical reaction all involve either a melting or solidification process.
Mathematically, melting/solidification problems are special cases of moving
There are only very limited exact solutions to melting/solidification
problems, and existing closed form solutions to these significant problems
are highly restrictive as to allowable initial conditions and boundary con-
So numerical solution becomes the main tool in the study of mov-
ing boundary problems.
In this paper, we consider the solution of melt-
