    Abstract A two-dimensional numerical model has been developed to investigate the phase-change of ice near 4 °C in a rectangular cavity. The enthalpy-porosity model is reformulated in terms of conservation equations of mass, momentum and heat to account for the evolution the solid/liquid interface. Constant and time-dependent (with sinusoidal law) temperature boundary conditions are considered. Results confirm the possibility to control the typical dynamics of ice melting in a square cavity near the density inversion point by means of a wall temperature which varies in time (with given amplitude and frequency).
