I need help regarding the analysis of the candle flame. I want to phase change of paraffin wax at tip of the candle wick and simulate the effects of candle flame.

    Can you not model the candle flame as a wall with a temperature or heat flux condition? Perhaps, use the data from the literature (temperature vs. time or heat flux vs. time) and use the solidification / melting model for phase change in the paraffin wax?
