Abstract

Melting of a horizontal, circular ice cylinder immersed in quiescent saline water has been investigated experimentally to determine the effect of initial liquid depth from the top of the ice cylinder to the saline water surface. Emphasis wsa placed on interpreting the heat transfer mechanisms which control solid-liquid interface position. The measurements were carried out for saline water of 3.5 wt% salinity with ambient temperatures ranging from 1.8 to 19.8 °C. Flow visualization was employed to study the transient flow patterns and corresponding solid-liquid interface positions. Local heat transfer coefficients at the solid-liquid surface were determined and found to be complicated functions of time and imposed thermal conditions as well as position.
