Abstract: A mathematical model to simulate the supercooling process and frazil ice evolution in a counter-rotating flume was developed. It considers the effect of frazil ice thermal growth while neglecting several complicated physical processes such as secondary nucleation, flocculation, and (or) break up. The supercooling process, vertical distribution of flow turbulence parameters, and frazil ice number concentration were simulated, as well the variation of the mean size of frazil ice during the supercooling process was modeled. The simulation results from this model show good agreement with experimental data.
