Modeling and Simulation Group Meeting Old

Shape dynamics of ice melting in cold water

Speaker: Scott Weady

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1314

Date: Thursday, December 3, 2020, 12:30 p.m.


Water is an unusual fluid in that it is densest above its freezing point, at about 4 degrees Celsius. In this talk, we'll discuss experiments in the Applied Math Lab, supplemented by numerical simulations, that show how this property writes itself onto melting ice in surprising ways.
