Ice Adhesions on Surfaces

thesis
posted on 01.05.2020, 00:00 by Rajith Unnikrishnan
ce adhesion of pure water has been studied throughout literature and the reduction of ice adhesion assumes primary importance to society. There have been many studies conducted on how the ice adhesion strength can be reduced for various substrates which led to the development of superhydrophobic surfaces, textured surfaces, hydrophobic and icephobic coatings, sol-gel coatings and more recently PSLs. In this work, we have focused on understanding the origins of ice adhesion on surfaces with a wide variety of texture surface energies. The special focus of this study is to emulate icing under normal conditions and understand how their adhesion can be modulated on surfaces.
