    Visual simulation of melting ice considering the natural convection


    In animation research, simulating the shape of melting ice is difficult because it contains complicated phenomena such as thermal energy transfer and latent heat.
    As existing research on melting objects with thermal energy conduction, Jones [Jones 2003] Solved the problem of latent heat by using complex formulas and processing branches, and proposed heat diffusion under a constant thermal field. Carlson et al. [. Carlson et al 2003] simulated melting and flowing process of high viscous materials such as wax or lava by simulating fluids.
