Ice Rinks and Pools

The Ice Rinks and Pools extension allows you to have open ice and water surfaces in a zone.

The models account for both mass and heat transfer between the surface and the zone. Needed cooling and heating of the water in order to reach and maintain desired setpoint temperatures are modeled. For ice formation, the phase-change process is treated and the continuous refreshment of pool water is also accounted for. For ice rinks, two pipe layers are modeled, one for freezing the ice and another below the ice layer to heat the ground in order to prevent frost propagation.
