Ice accretion on structures is discussed with an emphasis on estimating structural design iceloads and solving operational icing problems. Basic principles of modelling of icing caused by freezingExpand
Anti-icing and de-icing techniques for wind turbines: Critical review
Precipitation, atmospheric and in-cloud icing affect wind turbine operation in various ways, including measurement and control errors, power losses, mechanical and electrical failures and safetyExpand
Ice protection of offshore platforms
Climate change-induced reduction in the extent and duration of sea ice cover, as well as an increase in energy demands, has caused renewed interest in exploring and drilling for oil in Arctic waters.Expand
Bio-inspired strategies for anti-icing.
Effectively trapping air in surface textures of superhydrophobic surfaces weakens the interaction of the surfaces with liquid water, which enables timely removal of impacting and condensed water droplets before freezing occurs. Expand
Development of anti-icing materials by chemical tailoring of hydrophobic textured metallic surfaces.
A modification of the classical heterogeneous nucleation theory is used to explain the observed freezing temperatures lessening on untreated and negatively charged hydrophobic stainless steel surfaces, which could help the design of new composite materials that more efficiently prevent ice formation.

Anti-icing performance of superhydrophobic surfaces
Abstract This article studies the anti-ice performance of several micro/nano-rough hydrophobic coatings with different surface chemistry and topography. The coatings were prepared by spin-coating orExpand
Robust prototypical anti-icing coatings with a self-lubricating liquid water layer between ice and substrate.
A robust prototypical anti-icing coating with a self-lubricating liquid water layer (SLWL) is fabricated via grafting cross-linked hygroscopic polymers inside the micropores of silicon wafer surfaces that exhibits excellent capability of self-healing and abrasion resistance. Expand
Anti-icing coating with an aqueous lubricating layer.
It is demonstrated for the first time that the formed ice on this anti-icing coating can be blown off by a wind action in the wind tunnel with a controlled temperature and wind velocity. Expand
