Experimental measurements and photographic observations are presented for the solidification of a binary, aqueous ammonium chloride solution in a vertical channel. Transient liquidus front progressions and temperature measurements are used to characterize the influences of flow rate, superheat, composition, and chill wall temperature on binary phase-change behavior. Experimental results are compared with previously reported model predictions and discrepancies are used to critically assess model assumptions and limitations.
