Sustainable Smart De-Icing by Surface Engineering of Acoustic Waves

Project description

Acoustic waves as a novel solution for de-icing of industrial facilities

Icing on surfaces is a regular phenomenon that can result in catastrophic events and heavily affects the performance of industrial facilities. The EU-funded SOUNDofICE project is bringing together anti-icing specialists, materials scientists and engineers to test whether high frequency (MHz-order) surface acoustic waves can be used to remove ice from surfaces in a smart and sustainable way. To that end, the project will work on a solution based on the surface engineering of acoustic waves capable of working in harsh conditions at a minimum energetic cost. Specifically, it will develop models of surface wave atom excitation of ice aggregates and integrate acoustic transducers into large areas. Overall, the project aims to show how its de-icing strategy beats current methods. The technology will be tested and its future transfer to key EU players in aeronautics, renewable energy and household appliances will be reviewed.
