The paper presents numerical simulations for the prediction of thermal‐stress and deformation fields resulting from phase change in solidifying bodies employing new finite element representations. The formulations developed in this paper provide different perspectives and physical interpretation for the modelling/analysis of thermo‐mechanical problems and possess several inherent advantages. In comparison to traditional approaches for solving similar problems, the paper employs new computational architectures in conjunction with flux/stress based representations to enhance the overall effectiveness. Comparative numerical applications validate applicability of the formulations for predicting the temperature induced deformations and stresses resulting from effects due to phase change.
