Abstract

An experimental investigation has been conducted to determine the characteristics of marine icing on a horizontal circular cylinder immersed in a cold airstream accompanied by seawater spray. Extensive measurements were made for a variety of conditions including airstream velocity, air temperature, droplet diameter, initial droplet temperature, and mass flow rate of droplets. The salt content distribution within an ice layer accumulated on the cylinder was successfully determined. It was distinctly observed that the morphology of the ice accretion depended mainly upon both airstream velocity and droplet size, while the surface features of the ice layer varied markedly with both droplet diameter and droplet temperature.
