The transient freezing of a liquid flowing inside a circular tube is investigated analytically under the assumption of a constant tube wall temperature which is lower than the freezing temperature, constant properties, a slug-flow velocity profile and quasisteady state heat conduction in the solid phase. The variation of the local heat flux and the profile of the solid-liquid interface during freezing has been determined as a function of time and position along the tube. The analysis produced steadystate heat transfer rates and profiles for the solid-liquid interface which agreed well with experiments.
