We report the design of a laboratory experiment in a frost layer is built in a controlled environment on a vertical surface. The objective is investigate defrost mechanisms on test surfaces with a given contact angle. The procedure generally involves creating a frost column with a certain thickness and bulk density and then melting it to determine defrost time, efficiency and conditions under which slumping is observed.
