Solver for ski base sliding friction
Hello everyone,

My work is about ski base sliding friction. I want to simulate the conduction of heat and the process of the water film thickness under skating skier.

My idea is, i set the parameters (thermal conductivity, diffusivity of ice) and the pressure on the skier. As a result i get the point of the phase transition ice to water and the mass of the melt water, maybe.

Can i use the buoyant simple foam solver? Or have someone a better idea?

Thanks a lot
