The role of various atmospheric parameters in determining atmospheric ice accretion intensity on structures near the ground is examined theoretically, with an emphasis on glaze formation. Methods are presented for calculating the icing rate on cylindrical objects, and estimates of maximum deposition intensities are made. A relationship between meteorological conditions and the type of ice formation (glaze and rime) is given. The lack of adequate experimental data limits verification of the theory, but some comparisons, mainly qualitative, are promising.
