This example shows how to set up a glacier flow model in principle, containing several important aspects of glacier modeling: The creation of the 2D geometry, the modeling of non-Newtonian flow, and the implementation of basal sliding. In this example, two different glacier types, a cold glacier and a temperate glacier, are modeled.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- either the CFD Module, or Heat Transfer Module and
- either the Heat Transfer Module, or Subsurface Flow Module and
- either the CFD Module, Microfluidics Module, or Plasma Module and
- either the CFD Module, Microfluidics Module, or Polymer Flow Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
