How the growth of ice depends on the fluid dynamics underneath

5 March 2021:
Researchers of the Toschi group of Eindhoven University of Technology think the water phase change problem with considering the water density anomaly is of great importance relating to common natural phenomena. Their research plan is firstly to understand the physics fundamentals, that is, the coupled problem of the stably and unstably stratified layers with considering the density anomaly. The current work is only the stepping stone to later explore more interesting yet complex icing problems. In future, they also plan to investigate the ice melting and formation with respect to the seawater, e.g. in the experiments adding salt to the system and in the simulation adding concentration scalar field coupled with the temperature field (which is the ‘double-diffusive convection’) to mimic the seawater.
