Abstract: To aid in the design of surfaces that prevent icing, a model and computational simulation of impact ice formation at the single droplet scale was implemented. The nucleation of a single supercooled droplet impacting on a substrate, in rime ice conditions, was simulated. Open source computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software was used for the simulation. To aid in the design of surfaces that prevent icing, a model of impact ice formation at the single droplet scale was proposed•No existing model simulates simultaneous impact and freezing of a single super-cooled water droplet•For the 10-week project, a low-fidelity feasibility study was the goal.
