Abstract: A Stefan's problem in a finite domain may be given an approximate analytical solution. An example is shown with constant boundary and initial conditions. The solution is initially that of a semi-infinite domain, transits through infinitely many intermediate stage solutions, and finally becomes stationary. The solution is exact in the initial stage and also at the steady final stage, but approximate at the intermediate stages.
