How do I fix temperature fields that become a little bit unphysical in melting or solidification cases?

In melting or solidification cases, users have to define the source term to dampen the momentum and turbulence equation. When there are solid or solid forms, it can sometimes cause the temperature to transform unphysically. For example, the temperature can drop a little bit below the initial temperature, even if the whole domain is insulated and no heat is taken out of the domain. To avoid this, the user has to toggle on “Incl. coeff. in Rhie Chow” below the general momentum source tab in the subdomain panel, which indicates whether or not the momentum source coefficient will modify the Rhie Chow coupling term in the continuity equation.
