|Abstract||An enthalpy based Fixed-Grid method is developed for modeling phase change in a binary alloy subjected to periodic boundary condition. A two-dimensional model is developed for the melting and solidification cycle a gallium-tin (eutectic) alloy. The model also includes the natural convection effect in the liquid zone. Two cases are studied: (1) one of the boundaries is subjected to periodic variation of the temperature and (2) the same boundary subjected to periodic variation of heat flux. An enthalpy based fixed grid approach is used to solve the energy equation. The SIMPLER algorithm of Patankar is used to calculate the flow variables from continuity and momentum equations. The Tri-Diagonal-Matrix-Algorithm is used to solve the algebraic discrete equations. The melting and solidification fronts are captured implicitly by calculating the latent heat content at each control volume. An iterative update procedure is developed to update the latent heat content at each control volume. The proposed methodology is very simple to implement as the grid size is fixed. Since the grid size is fixed, hence the computational domain is also fixed. The domain is discretized once at the beginning of computation. The results obtained using the proposed enthalpy method is being validated with the available experimental results for melting of pure gallium. It is seen that, the solidification front takes a rather more regular shape, than the melting front. This is because of the rapid dissipation of temperature gradients in the melt. Hence, the movement of the solidification front is not modified by the fluid flow.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
