This paper presents the Generalized Newmark Dual Reciprocity Boundary
Element Method, GNDRM, for solving nonlinear transient field problems with
phase change. GNDRM is a combination of the Generalized Newmark family of
single step time marching schemes and the Dual Reciprocity Boundary Element
Method. Iterations are performed at each time step using the Newton-Raphson
method with line searches. Latent heat effects due to phase change are
incorporated using a fixed-grid apparent heat capacity method
