Ice Adhesion: Mechanism, Measurement, and Mitigation (Adhesion and Adhesives: Fundamental and Applied Aspects)


Ice Adhesion: Mechanism, Measurement, and Mitigation (Adhesion and Adhesives: Fundamental and Applied Aspects) by K. L. Mittal
English | November 24, 2020 | ISBN-13: 978-1119640370 | 704 Pages | PDF | 82 MB


The book containing 18 chapters is divided into three parts: Part 1: Fundamentals of Ice Formation and Ice Characteristics; Part 2: Ice Adhesion and Its Measurement; and Part 3: Methods to Mitigate Ice Adhesion. The topics covered Include: Factors influencing the formation, adhesion and friction of ice; ice nucleation on solid surfaces; physics of ice nucleation and growth on a surface; condensation frosting; defrosting properties of structured surfaces; relationship between surface free energy and ice adhesion to surfaces; metrology of ice adhesion; test methods for quantifying ice adhesion strength to surfaces; interlaboratory studies of ice adhesion strength; mechanisms of surface icing and deicing technologies; anti-icing using microstructured surfaces; durability assessment of icephobic coatings; bio-inspired icephobic coatings; challenges in rational fabrication of icephobic surfaces; protection from ice accretion on aircraft; and numerical modeling and its application to inflight icing.
