This paper summarizes the research work carried out by the authors on domestic refrigerator no-frost evaporators. It includes an explanation of the experimental unit that is currently being constructed to test isobutane fin-and-tube evaporators, together with a short description of the numerical tools developed. The first preliminary experimental results using single-phase coolants are then given together with their numerical counterparts. The numerical results are presented in detail in order to both complementing the experimental information obtained, and to show its potential as an analysis and design tool.
