Abstract:

THE PNEUMATICALLY DE-ICED STRUCTURAL ICE DETECTOR IS DESIGNED TO BE BATTERY OPERATED AND CONSUME VERY LITTLE POWER. THE ICE DETECTOR PROBE AND MOUNTING ARRANGEMENT ARE BOTH PNEUMATICALLY DE-ICED USING GAS OPERATED RUBBER DE-ICER BOOTS. THE PRESSURE IS SUPPLIED BY A COMPRESSED DRY VITROGEN GAS TANK. THE ICE DETECTOR WILL MEASURE THE WEIGHT OF ICE FORMING ON THE PROBE; IT CAN ALSO MEASURE THE LOADS ON THESE ICE FORMATIONS IN AZIMUTH AND TORSIONAL WIND LOADS THROUGHT VERTICAL AXIS OF THE ICE DETECTOR. THESE LOADS WILL BE MEASURED BY A FORCE TRANSDUCER LOCATED BETWEEN THE PROBE AND THE MOUNTING SUPPORT. THE PROBE AND MOUNTING SUPPORT WILL BE DE-ICED PERIODICALLY, DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT OF ICE ACCUMULATED ON THE PROBE, AND THE INSRUMENTATION PACKAGE WILL RECORD ALL FUNCTIONS OF THE ICE DETECTOR ALL THIS DATA WILL BE TIMECODED.
