Abstract: A simplified model for the solidification of an ingot being cast continuously by withdrawing it from a mould at constant rate is studied via the variational inequalities approach. Existence, uniqueness and regularity results are given for this one-phase Stefan type problem, together with a detailed analysis for the free boundary (the solid-liquid interface) particularly with respect to the asymptotic behavior as time $ t \uparrow \infty $ where the steady state is attained.
