Abstract

CONDIF-01 is a finite element computer code developed at JRC Ispra to solve natural and forced convection problems. The new version of the code is capable of analysing problems in which there exists initially a liquid (solid) region which may change phase to solid (liquid), as time proceeds. A variant of the enthalpy method is employed to model the phase change process. The presence of structures enclosing the liquid (solid) region is accounted for, but such structures are assumed to remain in the solid phase. PLane and axisymmetric situations may be analyzed. This report gives instructions for preparing input data to CONDIF-01, release 2, and describes two test problems in order to illustrate both the input and the output of the code.
