Abstract: Abstract: An experimental study of the heat transfer characteristics of a bubble-driven water jet on an ice surface was conducted. Two Lucite columns, one 1.829 m high and 0.286 min diameter and the other 1.219 m high and 0.140 m in diameter were used. Water levels were maintained at 0.762 and 1.524 m in the large column and 0.840 m in the small column. Hypodermic needles with openings of 0.152, 0.406 and 0.838 mm were used for bubble formation. The air flow rate was varied from 7.39 X 10⁻⁸ to 9.91 X 100⁻⁷ m³ /s. In all, 171 experimental runs were conducted.
