But dont see any reduction in the thickness of the ice layer, Intial thickness is considered as 0.5 mm. Ambient temp on wind shield is around 27 deg C. Any guess what would be wrong. thanks in advance.

I found that there was wrong in the ambient temperature 27 deg c i was using. I made it -18 deg C. Now the results looks good. thanks a lot for the reply. Roman likes this.

Ice and windshield are at -20deg C initially and heating pad generates 30W. Ambient : -20C VOF model and Eulerian multiphase model with a single phase (water-ice) are used with const density..viscosity and therml conductivity are modelled as field functions based on "relative solid volume fraction of water-ice phase". specific heat is a field function based on temperature. Afetr running steady state simulation I'm getting visibility on windshield as shown in the fig. visibility-top-new_image_24900.jpg Can anyone tell me why has the curve went in this fashion and where must have I gone wrong? Thanks, Shyam
