The
Define/Models/Solidification & Melting... menu item opens the
Solidification and Melting panel.
Solidification and Melting Panel
The
Solidification and Melting panel allows you to set parameters related to the solidification/melting model. See Section
24.3 for details about the items below.
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
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.
