An Eulerian approach is proposed to account for the dynamics of the secondary droplets generated by the splashing and bouncing of Supercooled Large Droplets during in-flight icing and to address the water detachment from trailing edges and sharp corners for complex three-dimensional geometries. Computational cost is minimized through statistical clustering approaches, and a model to predict liquid detachment is developed considering mass conservation and cohesion forces.
