Abstract:

The temperature field produced by a cryosurgical probe embedded in a clear gelatin-water test medium has been experimentally investigated. The temperature field emanating from the cryoprobe was measured using a thin mylar sheet sprayed with liquid crystals, a temperature -117C were studied. The experimental results compared within approximately 9 of a one dimensional analytical solution for predicting ice growth rate. Author
