DE-ICING OF RADOMES AND LOCK WALLS USING PNEUMATIC DEVICES

A rough comparison between thermal and mechanical methods of de-icing indicates that mechanical methods could potentially de-ice with an order-of-magnitude less energy than that required to melt an ice accretion. Two applications of mechanical de-icing using pneumatically driven inflatable de-icers are described in this report.
