Problem description:
A cylinder(Al) at room temperature is injected into the liquid steel with a constant speed.
During its injection, the liquid steel solidifies on itself a layer of the steel.
This layer of shell may melt later due to the heat convection between the liquid/solid.

I am doing this in Fluent with Solification/Melting Model.
But it is difficulty to take account of moving boundary and especially the progressive solidification.

Thx for ur help.
