• Green’s function method was applied for the transient temperature of an annular fin when a phase change material solidified on it. The solidification of the phase change materials (PCM) took place in a cylindrical shell storage. The thickness of solid PCM on the fin varied with time and was obtained by the Megerlin method. The models were found by the Bessel equation to form an analytical solution. Three different kinds of boundary conditions were investigated. A comparison of analytical and numerical solutions was given. The results demonstrate that significant accuracy is attained for the temperature distribution for the fin in all cases.
