A finite element algorithm including phase change is presented for the prediction of the rate of freezing of fresh water under general ambient conditions. This method has shown to be highly versatile in dealing with multi-phase materials of complicated geometries. Experiments were performed to verify the code prediction on the fusion of fresh water and a case with oil inclusion. Close agreement was observed between the predicted and measured values.
