The conservation element and solution element (CE/SE) method, an accurate and efficient explicit numerical method for resolving moving discontinuities in fluid mechanics problems, is used to solve three-dimensional phase change problems. Several isothermal phase change cases are studied and comparisons are made to existing analytical solutions. The CE/SE method is found to be accurate, robust and efficient for the numerical modeling of phase change problems.
