Computation of non-isothermal flow problems involving moving interfaces is presented. A Lagrangian interface technique, defined in the context of a fixed-mesh finite element formulation for incompressible flows, is employed to update the interface position. A global mass-corrector algorithm is used to accurately enforce the global mass conservation. The Navier-Stokes equations are solved with an improved sub-element integration technique to more accurately account for sudden changes in the fluid properties across the interface. The method described is applied to two mould filling problems.
