Abstract

Freezing/melting of water/ice around vertically arranged four horizontal cylinders placed in a rectangular cavity is investigated numerically by using a commercial software package. Freezing/melting is affected by the bottom cylinder distance h from the cavity bottom and by a complicated natural convection as well as the interaction with the flow around each cylinder.
