Hasanzadeh, K., Pena, D., Hoarau, Y., and Laurendeau, E., "Multi-time Step Icing Calculations Using a 3D Multi-block Structured Mesh Generation Procedure," SAE Technical Paper 2015-01-2161, 2015, doi:10.4271/2015-01-2161.
The paper presents the framework of fully automated two/three dimensional ice accretion simulation package, with emphasis on the remeshing step. The NSMB3D-ICE Navier-Stokes code, coupled to an Eulerian droplet module and iterative Messinger thermodynamic model, can perform multi time-steps ice accretion simulations via an automated multi-block elliptic/parabolic grid generation code (NSGRID3D). Attention is paid to the efficiency and robustness of the numerical calculations especially for complex 3D glaze ice simulation. The new automated multi time-step icing code NSMB3D-ICE/NSGRID3D is used to compute several icing studies on the GLC305 wing for rime and glaze ice cases.
