Sammanfattning

Ice formation on roads causes hazardous conditions due to reduction of road surface friction. Forecasting, detecting and preventing ice formation are therefore of high importance for winter road maintenance personnel. Advanced sensors for detecting road ice exist, but there is a demand for more cost-effective technologies. A method for detection of road surface ice formation based on remote temperature measurements with infrared thermometers is presented. Freezing events were detected based on the temperature dynamics that result from the exothermic reaction as water freezes. Experimental measurements in a climate chamber and in field conditions showed that ice formation often causes a distinct temperature pattern, which could easily be identified and distinguished from other temperature fluctuations. The method is promising as a cost-effective technique suitable for several applications in cold regions where detection of ice formation is important. (C) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
