Özet

This study calculates effect of ice formation on different cylinder geometries placed in a rectangular ice storage tank filled with water. Fluent package program was used for numerical solution of flow domain to depict temperature distribution and ice formation. Water temperature in tank and cylinder surface temperature were assumed as 4 degrees C and -10 degrees C respectively. Temperature distribution, liquid fraction and ratio of A(i)/A(c) (formed ice area / cross sectional area of cylinder) were determined for various cylinder geometries.
