Kwiaci is on a distinguished road
I am going to prepare a model of a metal thin cylindrical plate heated at same center of it on a very small area. The boundary conditions are walls and in this small heated area it is a wall with a heat flux.
My question is how to make this metal to melt down? Because after enabling melting/solidification option I can't define a liquidus and solidus or melting heat for metal, eg. titan. How to solve this problem?
