The problem of steady-state, two-dimensional ice formation around an isothermally cooled circular cylinder in a crossflow is studied experimentally for the ranges of Reynolds numbers, Red, 2.3 × 102 to 8.6 × 104 and cooling temperature ratios, θc, 6.3 to 75.8. The local and average heat transfer coefficients at the ice-water interface are obtained from measured ice profiles by using a series solution of the Laplace equation in the ice. Correlation equations for the average heat transfer are obtained for three regimes of Reynolds numbers. A correlation is also obtained for the cooling capacity that can be stored in the ice layer around a cylinder.
