Abstract : A computer program is described for numerical evaluation of temperature profiles and interface position as a function of time for cylindrical filaments undergoing solidification. The method is outlined for cooling and solidification of a moving filament of molten polymer; however, unsteady-state heat transfer in two-phase systems can be studied with the same program. Boundary conditions include the effect of convective and radiative energy losses. The program listing is given in FORTRAN IV. (Author)
