Theoretical solution for the solidification process around a horizontal tube with internal convection cooling is described in this paper. Boundary layer analysis and the approximate integral method were applied to obtain the solution for the natural convection in the liquid region and the transient temperature profile in the solid region. Effects of Biot number on the wall temperature and the volume fraction solidified are also discussed in this paper.
