(frē'zing),
1. The temperature below which a liquid becomes solid.
2. Congealing, stiffening, or hardening by exposure to cold.

freezing

a sudden inability to initiate or continue repetitive motor activity of patients with Parkinson's disease. The patient may be unable to take the first step in walking or, if walking, may find a real or imagined obstacle that causes the feet to remain in one spot.

Congealing, stiffening, or hardening by exposure to cold.

freezing

reducing the temperature of materials to the freezing point of water so that they are frozen solid. Used in the preservation of food, the preparation of material for histopathological examination and in cryosurgery.

freezing point
the temperature at which a liquid begins to freeze; for water, the freezing point is 32°F (0°C).
quick freezing
greatly improves the quality of meat because of reduced ice crystal formation.
skin freezing

Another benefit of the on-site solidification process was that Coast Digger was able to combine the solidified slurry with topsoil, which was then used by the primary contractor to backfill trenches.
Since the cooling of a soldered joint after leaving the wave is affected by many factors--solder volume in the joint, the heat sinking effect of the parts involved, alloy composition, lead plating, and so on--the solder solidification will not be the same for all joints.
These angles also change as solidification proceeds from bottom to top, eventually forcing the formation of a cusp.
