Perturbation solutions are obtained for one-dimensional phase change problem in a finite region subject to convective and radiative boundary condition at the fixed boundary. The radiative term is first approximated by Taylor’s series expansion, then the perturbation technique is used. Analytical expressions for total solidification time and the rate of solidification as well as the temperature distributions are obtained. Close agreement is observed between the present analysis and that of an early work.
