Tobias Eidevåg is an industrial Ph.D. student from Volvo Cars. His research aims to investigate snow adhesion on exterior vehicle surfaces. By deepening the knowledge about snow and ice adhesion it is possible to predict snow accumulation on sensitive sensors such as radars, camera lenses and lidars. The goal is to develop simulation models that couples aerodynamics with snow/ice particles to predict the accumulation of snow on vehicle surfaces. Both experimental studies and simulations such as CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and DEM (Discrete Element Method) are used to attain this goal.
