Phase change materials are nowadays used in a wide range of technical applications such as energy storage, building temperature comfort, food-freezing, etc. The accurate modelling of this process is important for the performance and usability of many technologies. Analytical solutions can be used only for simple heat transfer problems which make the numerical methods the only possible way how to deal with complex multidimensional cases. This paper deals with the comparison of commonly used numerical schemes for heat diffusion with phase change and its parallel computation possibilities.
