Frosting and Icing for Efficient Energy Use in Engineering Applications provides a compendium of innovative case studies for mitigating impacts from frosting and icing on energy. This book first clarifies the mechanisms of frosting and icing, outlining modeling options, and control techniques. Next, a series of experimental examples show the effects of frosting at different scales of energy production, from ambient air vaporizers to wind turbines, and demonstrate how to control these for maximum efficiency. Finally, the mechanisms and mitigation of frosting are examined in a variety of infrastructure scenarios, including sustainable food storage and efficient high-speed railways.

Combining the theoretical fundamentals of frosting and icing with a huge range of real-world case studies, this resource shows how to limit energy loss to these effects in key areas of engineering.
