The problem of transient heat transfer and growth of solid in the inviscid stagnation flow when phase change from liquid to solid occurs is considered. A fast and accurate numerical scheme is developed to determine the instantaneous temperature distribution in both solid and liquid phases and the growth rate of solid directly, without iterative calculation. The solution of the dimensionless governing equations is dependent on the three dimensionless parameters. The characteristics of the transient heat transfer and solidification process for all the parameters are elucidated.
