Article Preview

In this study, a simple model that describes frost formation over ground aircraft surfaces is presented. The model uses the data of the aircraft surface temperature, air temperature and air velocity to predict the frost thickness. The frost surface temperature and the frost thickness under different atmospheric conditions are investigated. The results indicate the frost thickness increases with the air velocity and the air temperature, decrease with the surface temperature. This model enables forecast of the frost formation over ground aircraft surface.
