Abstract : The concept of using a model ice heat sink as a device for indicating the feasibility of large ice container heat sinks was investigated from a conceptual and parametric viewpoint. The main problem addressed was the assurance that heat could be transferred to the sink quickly enough to prevent overheating of the coolant water. To avoid the need for scaling the properties of water, normally used heat transfer relationships were applied to both the model and to the large heat sink. The resultant equations were then converted to ratio and reduced to combinations of terms. These included a geometrical ratio, heat flow ratio, temperature difference ratio and a time ratio. The report also includes preliminary model design and test parameter information for time ratios up to 20:1. (Author)
