A numerical study of the flow in and heat transfer across a vertical cavity containing pure water when the aspect ratio of the cavity is low, i.e. 1 or less, has been undertaken. One vertical wall of the cavity is kept at a temperature that is below the freezing point of water while the opposite wall is kept at a temperature that is above this freezing temperature. Ice therefore forms in part of the cavity, the conditions being such that there can be significant natural convection in the water… CONTINUE READING
