A review of the relevant literature on frost formation and the defrost process is presented. Key elements of the frost formation process are first described and summarized, and the role of surface wettability is highlighted. The effect of surface wettability, melt water behavior and ice adhesion on the defrost process is then discussed, and several experimental and analytical investigations are reviewed.
