Abstract

The effect of melting on convective heat transfer between a melting body and surrounding fluid was studied quantitatively from the point of view of boundary layer theory, film theory and penetration theory. These studies indicate that melting retards the rate of heat transfer, and the decrease in heat transfer coefficient is found to be a unique function of the parameter CpΔTHm where ΔT is the temperature difference between the fluid and melting body, Cp is the heat capacity of the fluid and ΔHm the enthalpy change due to melting.
