hello Foamers

my question is:

how can I simulate in OpenFoam melting of the PCM (phase change material) which is in the brick-wall? I mean that in the brick-wall are regions (for example of circular shape) with PCM which are embeded in the
bricks. On one side of the wall we have
higher temperature than on the other side.

can you give me any suggestions?

best regards
