In this paper, energy conserving Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPDe) is used to study liquid characteristics when the walls are kept at a melting temperature. The formulation of the phase change problem is based on the latent heat model available in the literature. It is incorporated into the DPDe method to simulate a one-dimensional solid-liquid moving boundary problem. The solution domain is considered to be a two-dimensional Cartesian box where DPDe particles are randomly distributed. Periodic boundary conditions are applied in the flow direction and solid DPDe particles are placed as additional layers on the top and bottom of the domain. The DPDe result was compared with the available analytical solution and the effects of the DPDe parameters and thermal characteristics are discussed.
