Physically realistic ice melting simulation

Hey guys, Im trying to simulate the melting of ice on blender to simulate how real world ice sculptures will melt.

I found this article online outlining a good method to do this with a particle-based model and was wondering if you think this method could be done in blender?

Depends on what you mean by ‘could be done’. There isn’t a builtin sim currently available to do that. It would have to be implemented, either as an addon, or directly in the blender code. The latter seems to be unlikely to happen, as the feature is rather specialized.
