Frost growth on a cooled vertical cylinder in free convective flow was studied experimentally. A correlation that is based on heat transfer considerations was found to be effective in predicting frost growth rates particularly at relative humidities equal to or greater than 65 percent and growing times equal to or greater than 60 min.
