Controls

Model   contains the option for turning on the model.

Solidification/Melting   enables/disables the modeling of solidification and/or melting.

Parameters   contains parameters related to the solidification/melting model

Mushy Zone Constant   sets the value of $A_{\rm mush}$ in Equation  24.2-8.

Include Pull Velocities   includes pull velocities in the model, as described in Sections  24.2.2 and 24.2.5.

Compute Pull Velocities   enables the calculation of pull velocities based on the specified velocity boundary conditions, as described in Section  24.2.5. This option appears when Include Pull Velocities is turned on.

Flow Iterations per Pull Velocity Iteration   specifies the number of times the pull velocity equations will be solved after each iteration of the solver. This option appears when Compute Pull Velocities is turned on.
