PRESENT STATUS OF THE BRIDGE ICE DETECTION PROGRAM AT FHWA

This paper discusses the need for an effective ice detection system for bridges, and outlines an early evaluation program that has led to the selection of a spot ice detector for further testing. This small detector is installed flush with the surface of a pavement and, with its associated electronics package, is capable of transmitting surface conditions to a remote location over a telephone or radio link. The advantages of an area ice detector are discussed and results to date in the development of a microwave radiometer for detection of surface condition are presented. /Author/
