Conduction Characteristics of Frosting Circumferential Fin of Rectangular Profile
Through the appropriate assumptions, a mathematical model was derived on circumferential fin of rectangular profile coated with frost layer, and a new analytical solution is presented and compared to alternative approaches for calculating the ﬁn temperature and efﬁciency. The analytical solution enhances the accuracy ,and have a simpler form of expression. It can be easily used in engineering practice. The solution is useful for other cases of a low-thermal-conductivity coating on a high-thermal-conductivity substrate .
