SAE International has announced publication of the new book, Ice Accretion and Icing Technology by Robert J. Flemming. With proposed changes in the regulations for operation in icing conditions, universities and industry have been working hard to respond to the challenge. This is especially true for the effects of ice crystals in the atmosphere, and for the threat associated with supercooled large drop (SLD) icing. Ice Accretion and Icing Technology addresses the measurement techniques and the drop physics that apply to icing, certification for flight through ice crystal clouds and in SLDs, improvements in predictive techniques, scaling methods, test facilities and techniques, and rotorcraft icing. The collection consists of 10 SAE International technical papers, chosen by Flemming, a known expert in the field. The book is listed at $95.00; SAE International members save up to 20%.
