Abstract
The overarching aim of this work is to study the freezing process of a single water droplet freezing on a cold surface, which is an interesting and important phenomenon with possible applications in many areas. Understanding the freezing process of a single water droplet is for example an important step when preventing unwanted icing, e.g. in the case of airplane wings and propellers, wind turbine rotor blades, and road surfaces.<br/>As a step in understanding the freezing process, the study specifically focuses on the internal flow in the droplet during the freezing process. To do this, the study combines the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to build a...
