Hello Everyone,
I am trying to simulate heating of asphalt in a enclosed container. Initially the fluid will be in solid form due to continuous heating it will turn into liquid. The main objective is to find out how much time it will take to reach required viscosity level or required temperature for different geometric configurations. We are having viscosity vs temperature relation for this particular fluid.
My question is, Is it we need to model it as melting process (using solidification and melting model).

Thank you
