The transient freezing of a liquid in laminar flow inside a circular tube subjected to convection heat transfer on the external surface is investigated analytically. The effects of Biot number, fluid inlet temperature, and the external ambient temperature on the length of this freeze-free zone are illustrated. The variation of the thickness of the freeze layer as a function of time and position along the tube is determined.
