Hi folks,
I am wondering whether there is existing slover which can handle droplet solidification or icing problem?

Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

best,
Justin

In short, there is no OpenFoam solvers that can directly simulate icing problems. You will have to build it by yourself, and probably customize it for your specific conditions. The main issue will probably be mesh morphing.

A couple of years back, during my master, I wrote an OpenFoam solver to simulate in-flight rime ice accretion. I had to code everything from droplet trajectories, droplet collection, thermodynamic of the boundary, mesh morphing, ...

Sibo Li also did pretty much the same recently.

Good luck to you
