Computational Analysis of Automotive Windshield De-Icing with Comparison to Test Data 971833

The purpose of this study is to develop and demonstrate the techniques needed to perform a computational analysis of a windshield de-icing problem. A numerical model of a simplified test vehicle configuration has been built which includes the passenger compartment air, the windshield and the ice/water layer. A transient analysis was performed for conditions for which cold room test data is available. The results of the numerical simulation show very reasonable agreement with the test data.
