Özet

In the present study, it is aimed to calculate the effect of ice formation on different cylinder geometries placed in a rectangular cavity filled with water. For this aim Fluent package program was used to solve the flow domain numerically and temperature distribution and ice formation depending on time were illustrated. Water temperature in the cavity and cylinder surface temperature were assumed as 4, 8 and -10 A degrees C respectively and firstly temperature distribution, velocity vector, liquid fraction and ratio of A(i)/A(c) (formed ice area/cross sectional area of cylinder) were determined for cylinders with different placement in fixed volume.
