DEVELOPMENT OF A FROST AND ICE DETECTION SYSTEM FOR HIGHWAY BRIDGES

A frost and ice detection system for bridge decks based on the detection of the heat of fusion of ice is being used experimentally in Iowa. Observation of the operation of 5 installations during the 1971-72 winter revealed that 57 alarms were genuine and 9 were false and that on 7 occasions the units failed to detect frost, ice, or snow.
