hi i have to analyse the soldification behaviour of a phase change material encapsulted in a cylinder wat r the BC to be given and how to model it.

the tutorial is avilable only for casting with flow. in my case no flow will occur. the material will be sealed inside a cylinder. pls tell me how to do it.

if there is no flow, only heat transfer and solidification, no boundary is needed to specify, i think
