The existing equation for calculating water vapour supersaturation degree at frost surfaces was improved. An analytical model to simulate the performance of evaporators for indirect cooling refrigerators under frosting conditions was established. The mass of frost accumulating on the evaporator surface, the airside pressure drop, the frost density and thickness were calculated. In addition, the computing results were compared with the experimental data. It appears that the present model has good ability to simulate the performance of evaporators for indirect cooling refrigerators.
