The effect of the radiative transport on the solidification rate and on the temperature distribution in a semitransparent cylindrical medium is investigated. The integral method is employed in the analysis, and results for the cases of absorbing, opaque, and nonparticipating media are presented. It is concluded that the radiative contribution to the process of phase change does have a significant effect on the solidification rate and on the temperature distribution in the solid phase.
