      Dear, I am looking to simulate freezing in ANSYS CFX. I am aware that fluent has a kind of model but wondering if CFX has a solver to couple with. I heard there is a tutorial in this regard for CFX. 

       

      Bests,

      There is no Standard Tutorial on this and yes you can model Solidification in Ansys CFX using the Variable Composition Mixture Material made up of melt and solid. Additonal source terms will be required to freeze the solid and avoid turb. diffusion in solid regions.

        Would you please give more details explanation or refer to sth similar to look at?

      I better refer to the Ansys CFX Multiphase Training Lectures. The phase change lecture will contain more details how to model Solidification and Melting.
