SINOPSIS

In this model the equations of conservation of mass, momentum and energy are formulated in terms of the vorticity and the stream functions while the Boussinesq model is used to formulate the fluctuation term. The dimensionless variables used lead to continuous fusion in the discretized control volumes while the boundary conditions at the moving liquid-solid interface are determined iteratively in terms of the enthalpy and the stream functions. The predictions from the present model were compared with available experimental results and the agreement is found to be satisfactory.
