Icing Research Tunnel Testing Leads to Aircraft Safety NASA Glenn's Icing Research Tunnel, the largest in the U.S for creating aircraft icing conditions, has resulted in FAA regulations which have increased safety in the air for all : Kelly Heidman. electrical approach to measure ice thickness without drilling a hole. It is dependent on the electrical resistance in ice versus the water below (U.S. Patent No. 4,,, ). The patent used to start brainstorming in this project report is another attempt on measuring ice thickness.
SITHOS: Sea Ice Thickness Observation System. The rationale for this project is that sea ice thickness is a key climate indicator at high latitudes which seems to undergo significant changes, but this parameter is a real challenge to observe and there is an urgent need for improved measurement techniques. improve sea ice modelling by. First, a mold is made directly from ice accretion in the icing wind tunnel. Then, artificial ice accretion is cast from the mold. This method maintains nearly all the three-dimensionality and surface details of ice. This technique generates valuable benchmark for icing research (Broeren et al., , Broeren et al., , Papadakis et al., ).Cited by:
Michelle Apon was at Loose Park learning how to measure the thickness of ice so you can be safe during winter activities. Background: While a majority of the applications for ultrasonic nondestructive testing fall into a few well-known categories, the range of possibilities for the technology is larg.

The calibration steps included establishing a uniform cloud and conducting drop size and liquid water content calibrations. The goal of the calibration was to develop a uniform cloud, and toCited by: 1.
largest icing wind tunnels in the world and is constantly in high demand due to this unique capability. One of the tunnel’s main features is a large external balance and turntable system.
The tunnel needs to update this force measurement system (FMS) to increase the force and moment measurement accuracy and to improve facility throughput. The icing research tunnel at the NASA Glenn Research Center underwent a major rehabilitation innecessitating recalibration of the icing clouds.
The Sensors & Software IceMap™ GPR system is designed to measure the ice thickness on these temporary, yet vital, links and ensure the safety of travelers using these icy roads and bridges. The GPR-based ice thickness sensor is housed in a toboggan that is.

Gibson a Icing Research Tunnel rotating bar calibration measurement system [microform] /. measurement uncertainty occurring from geometry is mm. As it is intended to measure the time dependent thickness of ice formation, it is necessary to use several nodes for measurement.
There are five measurement nodes on three radial lines and fifteen electrodes on each probe. In. Sea ice thickness increases over time, and increases when winds and currents push the ice together.
The European Space Agency's Cryosat-2 satellite was launched in April on a quest to map the thickness and shape of the Earth's polar ice cover. Its single instrument - a SAR/Interferometric Radar Altimeter is able to measure the sea ice freeboard.
The ice thickness measurement is a big issue because it is quite hard to get it right. The substrate is placed inside an icing-tunnel and ideally we would like to make a measurement that do not require opening the tunnel. We know that others use laser to make measurement but at this point I know too little about the technique used.
removing accreted ice. The system was tested under representative rotor icing conditions and at centrifugal loads that ranged from g to g. The deicing successfully promoted instantaneous shedding of ice layers ranging from to 5 mm ( in.

In this facility, natural icing conditions are duplicated to test the effects of in-flight icing on actual aircraft components and models of aircraft, including. In one embodiment, the operator may be instructed to generate the response of the ice thickness measurement system 20 to ice of known thickness.
The calibration protocol may require as few as two data points of T vs. Δt unique thicknesses T and used to solve m and b of Eqn. (5) directly. He pursued this approach in  to design a piezoelectric de-icing system able to promote shedding of ice layers ranging from to mm in thickness for varying icing conditions and in [ Ice thickness measurements are generally taken near the beginning of the month from October to June.
Readings taken near the end of the month are appied to the following month. To view historical readings please select the month/year below.
Ice Adhesion Measurements of Ice Mitigation Coatings Pertinent to Aircraft Icing Prashanth Beeram1, Rye Waldman2, Hui Hu3 () Department of Aerospace Engineering, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa, Aircraft anti-icing/de-icing is one of the important areas of concern in current aerospace Size: 1MB.
At present ice thickness can be reliably determined by drilling a hole and measuring the thickness by some form of hook gage. This procedure requires, however, that individuals venture out on what is possibly "too thin" ice to make the measurement. For a number of thickness measurements over an area, surface drilling becomes a time consuming.
Once you have the proper tools and safety gear for fishing on the ice, consider these general safe ice fishing, or safe ice thickness guidelines. Stay off of any ice that is 3 inches or less thick. Remember that a minimum of 4 inches of clear, solid ice is a requirement to support an average person's weight.
Sea ice thickness spatial extent, and open water within sea ice packs can vary rapidly in response to weather and climate. Sea ice concentration are measured by satellites, with the Special Sensor Microwave Imager / Sounder (SSMIS), and the European Space Agency's Cryosat-2 satellite to map the thickness and shape of the Earth's polar ice cover.
The sea ice volume is calculated with the Pan. Russian KBOR company is developing a portable radar to measure ice thickness in real time. Our first experiment on this video. You can see the. Thickness of ice is one of the key indicators of global warming, but it is difficult to take these measurements accurately as direct methods can not be used on a large scale.
An international team of scientists make an effort to standardise these measurements and .assist in calibration of the icing cloud. The primary objective of the model is to support basic rotor icing research.
If the model can accurately predict impingement limits and shedding location and frequency, it will be useful for ice protection system sizing studies byFile Size: 1MB.Safe loads for clear and solid ice.
