Abstract: An analytical and laboratory model study was conducted on the potential use of ice as a medium for storage of waste heat developed by a hardened underground defense installation during the time it was operating on a closed cycle system. The use of ice is an attractive concept because of its high heat storage capacity per unit volume and its associated low coolant water temperatures. Three ice configurations were studied; a solid ice cylinder with annular flow, an ice block-water mixture, and an ice cube-water mixture. All of these configurations are shown to be feasible with the solid ice cylinder yielding the best overall performance.
