ADHESIVE STRENGTH OF CONTAMINATED ICE

Temperature dependence of adhesive strength of ice containing KC1 was measured using centrifugal force in examination of an area occupied by a solution at an substrate/ice interface. The AgN03 replica technique developed by Prodi and Nagamoto was applied to examine the solution-occupied area on the surface of ice broken off from a substrate and the counterpart surface remaining on the substrate. Decrease of adhesive strength of KC1-ice at temperatures higher than the eutectic point could be interpreted by the reduction of the real contact area between ice and the substrate due to examination of a liquid solution at the interface. /Authors/
