A quasi-steady analytical solution to freezing planar laminar Couette flow with viscous heating effects is presented. Closed-form expressions for the dimensionless freeze-front location, interface Nusselt number, and dimensionless power density (or dimensionless shear stress) are derived as a function of various dimensionless parameters. Several classical results are obtained in the appropriate asymptotic limits.
