To analyze the core degradation and relocation behavior of melts in a severe accident of nuclear power plant, the melting and solidification in the complexed geometry is to be calculated. For the calculation of such complexed behavior, a new particle method conserving angular momentum is proposed and applied for the melting simulation. When solid melts, it may move like a rigid body. The angular momentum conservation is important to capture such kind of motion. The potential of the new particle method was confirmed with a calculation of the melting in dam break geometry and cantilever geometry.
