Calculation of Ice Chunk Trajectory
In this work, calculation of trajectories of ice chunk are carried out at varying values of ratio of density of ice piece to that of the ambient fluid. Proper Orthogonal Decomposition with Interpolation (PODI) method is then applied on snapshots of trajectories simulated by computational fluid dynamics. Snapshots of trajectories are obtained based on cartesian grids, penalization, and level sets. The extracted POD modes from snapshots are then used to reconstruct solutions and capabilities of POD with interpolation are demonstrated on ice trajectory calculations for flow around iced airfoil and cylinder for density ratio's that are not part of the snapshot set.
