Phase change in ice-water systems in the geometry of horizontal
cylindrical annulus with constant inner wall temperature and adiabatic
outer wall is modeled with an enthalpy-based mixture model. Solidification
and melting phenomena under different temperature conditions are
analyzed through a sequence of numerical calculations. In the case of freezing
of water, the importance of convection and conduction as well as the influence
of cold pipe temperature on time for the complete solidification are examined.
As for the case of melting of ice, the influence of the inner pipe wall
temperature on the shape of the ice-water interface, the flow and temperature
fields in the liquid, the heat transfer coefficients and the rate of melting
are analyzed. The results of numerical calculations point to good qualitative
agreement with the available experimental and other numerical results.
