A continuum solidification model is used to study transport phenomena in a simulated Czochralski system for various rotation rates of the crystal and crucible. Solidification occurs on a cylindrical seed from the top surrounded by water in the crucible. An enthalpy formulation is adopted for numerical solution of convection-diffusion controlled solidification problems. Predicted solid-liquid interface and temperature distribution are in good agreement with the liquid crystal visualization experiments.
