Frost Formation on a Cylinder at Cryogenic Temperatures
During the course of an earlier investigation to determine the. minimum insulation that would prevent the formation of liquid air on bare cryogenic transfer lines carrying liquid hydrogen and liquid nitrogen, it was evident that ambient conditions were extremely important and that frost had some insulating value.
