Title:A One-dimensional Numerical Model for the Computation of the Transient Temperature of Liquid and Solid Drops in Free-fall
Author(s):Tang, K.C.; Czys, Robert R.
Subject(s):transient temperature of liquid
transient temperature of solid drops
temperature and freezing of raindrops
Abstract:This document describes a one-dimensional heat and mass transfer numerical model that was developed to study the temperature and freezing of raindrops in free-fall. The numerical model included the effects of ventilation and mass transfer on the disposal of heat, as well as the effects of mass transfer on drop size and drop fall speed. For liquid raindrops, the temperature distribution inside the drop is simulated by considering the heat conduction problem within the liquid drop. A modified version of the one-dimensional model is also presented to simulate raindrop freezing.
