Measurements of ice adhesion stresses on a rotating plate
Start of work: 01.04.2023
The aircraft industry works intensively on the development of various anti-icing and ice-prevention systems. One of the most important parameters characterizing icing is an adhesion force, which determines how strong an ice layer is attached to the aircraft surface. This project will help to accurately measure the tensile and shear stresses associated with the ice adhesion. The idea is based on the application of a frozen drop on a certain surface of a centrifugal force that appeared on a rotating body.
