Passive, nanoengineered anti-icing: An experimental perspective

Presented by: 
Manish Tiwari
Thursday 9th November 2017 - 10:00 to 11:00
INI Seminar Room 1
In this presentation I will share results from some fundamental experiments focussed on investigating freezing of supercooled cold drops in contact with solid surfaces. A common theme running through the presentation will the need for precise surface nanotexturing and wettability control to control ice formation, ice adhesion and impalement resistance of surfaces subjected to impact by cold liquid objects. I will use experimental results to highlight a rational approach to design icephobic surfaces offering passive anti-icing property. Aspects of surface durability will be touched upon followed by a discussion on results from our preliminary work on impact of water drops on nanoengineered, iceohobic surfaces.
