    • Abstract


      By employing a new embedding technique, a short-time analytical solution for the axisymmetric melting of a long cylinder due to an infinite flux is presented in this paper. The sufficient condition for starting the instantaneous melting of the cylinder has been derived. The melt is removed as soon as it is formed. The method of solution is simple and straightforward and consists of assuming fictitious initial temperature for some fictitious extension of the actual region.
