Abstract

The rate of icing in the wet growth conditions typical of ship icing and icing in freezing precipitation depends on the rate at which the heat liberated in the freezing process is transferred to the environment. A theoretical model for the heat transfer from the front half of a rough cylinder, based on boundary-layer theory, is described.

Comparisons with empirical data show that the model simulates well the overall heat transfer rate from the front half of a cylinder with distributed roughness. The theory provides improved agreement between the results of a numerical icing model and icing wind tunnel tests.
