The process of thermal disorder in crystalline ice has been simulated using a molecular dynamics model. The thermal disorder is induced by raising the temperature of the system. The molecular dynamics code vectorized on the CRAY Y-MP8/864 supercomputer generated the particle trajectories during the temperature increase. A 3-D graphics software has been developed to animate the motion of the ice molecules undergoing thermal disorder. A molecular dynamics animation video-movie has been produced to visualized the thermal disorder phenomena and will be shown at the conference.
