Iceberg Decay modeling
Why Is iceberg decay prediction important ?
International Ice Patrol map showing know iceberg positions,
Data collected through observation flights
Iceberg Collapse in Battle Harbour NL
Cracking and Calving
A good question is:
“How many of these factors can be accurately modeled using computer flow analysis”
Goal Of Work Term
To create standard simple series of ice melt experiments and data sets that can be used to aid in the verification and calibration of Computational Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics models to simulate iceberg melting.
Rough representation of flow around an iceberg
Types of Experiments Executed
Preliminary Set up experiments
Key findings of preliminary testing
Tank set up
Ice Wall Testing
Free Floating Dyed Ice Block
Shape Before Melt
Shape After Melt
Mass Flux Cube testing
This work would be suited to a person with advanced computer modeling experience.
