Default Latent Heat of Fusion
Posts: n/a
Hi, everyone, I am calculating heat transfer with fluid flow in the solid/liquid system which is very similar model of solidification tutorial. Due to more complexity of my system, solidification model did not work properly. So, I just used energy equation including radiation. To make more closed result to real condition, I need to give latent heat of fusion at the solid/liquid interface as boundary condition or source term though UDF. But, source term has W/m3 unit in boundary condition pannel. In addition, latent heat of fusion has kJ/mole unit, and this can not converted to W/m3. Could you let me know the proper method to apply latent heat of fusion in this model? Detail explanation will be very much appreciated.
