A Mathematical Model for Frost Formation on Ground Aircraft
A mathematical model is developed to describe frost formation on ground aircraft. The mathematical model was based on frost formation physics together with the mass and energy balance equation developed by Mason. It can be used to forecast the frost formation on ground aircraft. Particular attention is paid to the study of the effects of the important factors, such as surface temperature, atmospheric temperature and relative humidity on the frost growth rate over ground aircraft.
