A SURVEY OF ICING CONDITIONS FOR MARINE GAS TURBINES

A literature survey was conducted to define the possible hydrometeorological conditions during which icing of the gas turbine inlets of a ship could occur. Also included is a list of all sources of information used during the survey. A frequency-of-occurrence study of the icing conditions found during the literature survey was also done and the results included as maps of the North Atlantic. The North Atlantic was chosen as it gave the most complete data base available at the time.
