Abstract

We study dynamic ice formation and breaking (IF/B) on a thin vibrating membrane. The complicated discontinuous dynamics of the membrane is studied experimentally using laser vibrometry. Although the fluid- and coolant-membrane interaction with simultaneous ice forming and breaking is a complicated dynamical phenomenon, the average rate of ice formed and broken can be approximately quantified. The analytical results are compared to experimental measurements.
