Right tool for ice flow?
 
Hi,

Is OpenFOAM the right tool for the problem I'm looking to examine? I want to simulate an ice shelf (hydrostatically balanced floating ice) flowing through a channel. The channel widens. What stress and strains are induced into the ice due to the widening channel? It seems like OpenFOAM might be a good tool for this but I'm not yet certain, as it is a very complex bit of software. Any advice will be much appreciated.

Thanks,

-k.

Hi,
if you take a look at Prof Jasak´s PhD collection
you will find http://powerlab.fsb.hr/ped/kturbo/Op...tchingsPhD.pdf
the PhD from Hutchings this is about Ice

=> Ice modelling: Jenny Hutchings at google
http://powerlab.fsb.hr/ped/kturbo/op...mplesOfUse.pdf

so my guess is that OpenFOAM might be useful for your needs.
