This paper addresses the salt migration during phase transition of cooling water in the icicle growth period. This paper contains three parts, first, application of Fick's law in salt migration process; second, salt concentration measurement of icicles in artificial climate chamber; third, ice flashover experiments during melting period. Based on freezing model analysis, cooling water started to freeze from the water-insulator interface. Fick's diffusion law was applied to deduce the change of… CONTINUE READING
