Melting of ice around a horizontal cylinder of constant heat flux has been studied numerically^ Computations were performed for modified Stefan number Ste= 0.1, 0.3, 0.4, and 0.5 with modified Rayleigh number Ra+ ranging from 104 to 107. Due to the combined effect induced by the density anomaly of water as well as the temporal and circumferential variations of the cylinder surface temperature, several different flow structures and the resulting melting patterns were predicted to be quite different from those reported for isothermal boundary conditions.
