Ice Detection Experimentation Setup Using Infrared and Active Heating
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-07-24)
The paper shows the possible implementation of Infrared (IR) ice detection technique. The experimental setup is implemented keeping in view of the marine icing phenomena over the ships and offshore structures. The detection mechanism is unique from the passive IR detection by introducing the active heating concept. The intervention of the active heating information inside the IR ice detection system ...
A field study of atmospheric icing analysis in a complex terrain of the high north
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-12)
Analyses of atmospheric icing events hold the key for computing the significant parameters leading to icing load calculations. In the cold regions of the high north, atmospheric icing loads on structures become important when it comes to design and safety of infrastructures. Furthermore, icing load calculations over a certain period of time provide a vital input for designers to improve the ...
Atmospheric ice monitoring system operation at Remote locations in cold region
(Journal article; Peer reviewed; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2013)
The problems encountered in installation, maintenance and operations of equipment in the cold climate regions are far more complicated than others. The contributing factors and problems that can affect the system operation and performance should be identified, assessed and focused within well-defined parameters before its installation in cold climate regions. The harsh cold environment, could not ...
Study of the required thermal insulation (IREQ) of clothing using infrared imaging
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017)
The sense of cold develops due to the increase in heat loss from a human body. Excessive cold can be a health hazard, since excessive heat loss from the body may result in hypothermia/frostbite. Decreased body temperature due to heat loss also affects the physical, manual and perceptive performance of individuals. Therefore, protective measures are taken through clothing that controls and regulates ...
Review of marine icing and anti-/de-icing systems
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-08-17)
The aim of this work is to review the phenomenon of icing in marine operations. The focus is on two main sources of icing, namely atmospheric and sea spray. The literature reveals that sea spray icing is the main contributor to marine icing. This work discusses the available ice accretion prediction models on ships and offshore structures. It also reviews the anti-/de-icing technologies that can be ...
Measuring Thickness of Marine Ice Using IR Thermography
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-04)
<p>There are several challenges to operating in a cold climate. Marine icing is one of them, and its mitigation is vital for marine operations.</p> <p>The presented work is a laboratory-scale setup to measure marine ice thickness. The developed methodology can be applied towards de-/anti-icing setups. The method described is based on measuring the average surface temperatures of the marine ice. ...
