Abstract

This chapter describes the nature of frost removal as it affects the thermal performance of refrigeration systems. The overall scope of the research reported in this monograph is discussed and the defrost process is cast as a coupled heat and mass transfer problem. The effect of surface wettability on defrosting is introduced. The goal of obtaining conditions under which frost slumping occurs is discussed.
