      Rashid, Taimur; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Edvardsen, Kåre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-08-29)
      This paper presents a methodology to determine the thermal conductivity of ice using multiphysics analysis. This methodology used a combination of both experimentation and numerical simulation. In the experimental work, an ice block is observed using an infrared camera. The results reveal the variation in temperature over the surface. These results are dependent on two primary heat transfer parameters, ...
    • Ice Detection of Pure and Saline Ice Using Infrared Signature 

      Rashid, Taimur; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Edvardsen, Kåre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-11-30)
      The paper shows the possible implementation of an Infrared (IR) ice detection technique. In respect of safety in marine operations, saline ice detection can be significant for automated de-icing systems. Experimentation is performed to observe and detect saline and pure ice samples. The discussed detection mechanism is unique and differs from passive IR detection by introducing the self-heating ...
    • Ice Detection Setup Using Infrared and Active Heating 

      Rashid, Taimur; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Edvardsen, Kåre (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2015)
      Considering the cold environment operations, ice accretion can occur at a rapid pace and can adversely affect the operations. In such scenario, ice detection is useful for the ice mitigation and removal upon the marine and offshore structures. Various techniques exist in the literature to detect the icing mainly utilizing its physical or electromagnetic properties. The parameters measured by these ...

      Rashid, Taimur; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Edvardsen, Kåre (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2014)
    • Infrared Thermal Signature Evaluation of a Pure and Saline Ice for Marine Operations in Cold Climate 

      Rashid, Taimur; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Edvardsen, Kåre; Mughal, Umair Najeeb (Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Marine operations in cold climates are subjected to abundant ice accretion, which can lead to heavy ice loads over larger surface area. For safe and adequate operations on marine vessels over a larger area, remote ice detection and ice mitigation system can be useful. To study this remote ice detection option, lab experimentation was performed to detect the thermal gradient of ice with the infrared ...
    • Infrared Thermal Signature Evaluation of a Pure Ice Block 

      Rashid, Taimur; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Edvardsen, Kåre; Mughal, Umair Najeeb (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2015-08-23)
      Marine operations in cold climates are subjected to heavy ice accretion, which can lead to heavy ice loads causing safety concerns. Atmospheric and sea spray icing can cause severe ice accretion on structures. Ice detection over the relatively larger surface area of marine platforms and vessels could be significant for ice mitigation and its removal in cold climates. A thermal ice signature ...
    • Marine Icing and Anti/De-icing Systems 

      Rashid, Taimur; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Edvardsen, Kåre (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2015-12-10)
      Shipping operations are on the rise in the Arctic region. Due to these increased activities, maritime transport operations are encountering significant challenges with respect to the safety and reliability. These shipping operations are comprised of commercial vessels such as oil tankers, container ships, fishing vessels, tourism cruises, research and offshore exploration vessels and icebreakers In ...
    • Marine icing observed on KV Nordkapp during a cold air outbreak with a developing polar low in the Barents sea. 

      Samuelsen, Eirik Mikal; Løset, Sveinung; Edvardsen, Kåre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-06)
      Marine icing is a phenomenon that may occur for temperatures below subfreezing where sea spray either is lofted from the sea surface or being generated by waves interacting with a ship or a structure. On a voyage from Tromsø to the waters east of Bjørnøya late February 1987, the Norwegian Coast Guard vessel KV Nordkapp experienced heavy icing due to a polar low that raged over these waters during ...
    • Measuring the Sea Spray Flux using High-Speed Camera 

      Johansen, Jarle André; Edvardsen, Kåre; Sharma, Puneet; Khawaja, Hassan Abbas (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2015-12-10)
      The sea spray contains water droplets that are produced due to sea waves that collide with the marine structures as well as the breaking of waves due to the strong winds. Similarly, fog and precipitation at sea level may contribute to the phenomenon of sea spray containing water droplets of minuscule sizes. Wind characteristics (speed and direction) also has a direct influence on the speed of water ...

    • Multiphysics Simulation of Infrared Signature of an Ice Cube 

      Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Rashid, Taimur; Eiksund, Oddmar; Brodal, Eivind; Edvardsen, Kåre (Peer reviewed; Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2015-12-11)
      This poster presents the Multiphysics numerical methodologies used to simulate the Infrared (IR) signature of an ice cube when taken out of the cold environment (-28 C) and allowed to warm at room temperature conditions by means of natural convection. The ice cube is chosen to simplify the geometry. The cubical geometry can be discretized simply and hence allows easy application of Multiphysics ...

      Khawaja, Hassan Abbas; Rashid, Taimur; Eiksund, Oddmar; Broadal, Eivind; Edvardsen, Kåre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-08-29)
      This paper presents numerical methodologies to simulate the Infrared (IR) signature of an ice cube. The ice was frozen in a cold environment (-28<sup>o</sup>C) and allowed to have uniform temperature throughout. It was then taken out and let to warm at room temperature conditions by means of natural convection. A 3D transient heat equation is solved using three different methodologies. In the first ...
