Abstract

A free-surface cylindrical column of water (86 mm long by 30 mm diameter) was established during the first minute of microgravity on a sounding-rocket flight. Cooling was applied at one of the supporting discs to permit the advance of the solidification front and free-surface deformation to be observed during the ensuing 5 min of microgravity. The solidification front remained planar and the free surface remained cylindrical throughout, until affected by re-entry deceleration.
