This article deals with the analysis of solidification of a 2-D semitransparent material using the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). Both conduction and radiation terms in governing energy equation were computed using the LBM. First, the LBM formulation regarding conduction component was validated and the results analyzed. Next, the results involving phase change or radiation term in the LBM were compared with the finite volume method (FVM). The results show good accuracy and less time consumption during LBM implementation. Finally, temperature distribution, the location of solid-liquid front, mushy zone thickness and the effects of heat transfer parameters were studied. Solidification of 2-D semitransparent material is studied. Both conduction and radiation were computed using lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). LBM results validated by solving three benchmark problems. Effects of various parameters were studied on temperature distributions. show good accuracy and less time consumption during LBM implementation.
