Hi Tannistha,

In the temperature plot with pseudo-free surface, is it from 0th time 
step? In your input file, the top boundary has a constant temperature 
0.0, which can explain why the temperature field of the top surface were 
changed, if the plot is from later time step.

If the plot is from 0th time step, there might be a call to enforce 
temperature boundary condition with the pseudo-free surface code. You 
can find the location of the code by this command:
    grep pseudo.*surf lib/*c
