Abstract:

Correction factors are obtained for converting the weight of ice deposited on a linear meter of 5 mm diameter wire into that deposited on one square meter of surface of different, simply shaped bodies circular cylinder, sphere, circular disk, and flat plate, using present concepts of the physical processes that cause the icing of bodies of different shapes and sizes. The magnitudes of the correction factors increase significantly with increase in wind speed and decrease in the characteristic dimensions of the body. The values calculated for circular cylinders with a cross section of up to 200 cm are in good agreement with data from observations. Author
