Short summary
This paper examines a code-to-code verification between two thermal models. One used a non-commercial code; the other a commercial. A point heat source was applied to one end of a cylindrical geometry. Melting and re-solidfying of a 316 L stainless steel alloy was considered. Temperature dependent material properties and latent heat were included. Mesh independency was achieved. Positive agreement of thermal histories, temperature profiles, melt pool depth and maximum temperature along the rod.
