Arctic Technology & Icing Research Group
Arctic Technology & Icing Research Group focuses on developing improved scientific understanding of atmospheric ice accretion physics and Arctic cold climate technology. The research group covers wide range of topics related to cold climate technology, which mainly includes:
- Wind energy in cold climate
- Atmospheric ice accretion on structures (wind turbines, power transmission lines, communication towers etc.).
- Atmospheric icing sensors.
- Computational fluid dynamics\Multiphase flows.
These research topics covers analytical, numerical and experimental analysis. The research group members has good experience and wide research network on national and international level. This research group has a good lab based and computational resources based research infrastructure to carry out advance research activities to meet the industrial demands. This includes:
- Cold climate chamber.
- Particle image velocimetry (PIV) system.
- Subsonic wind tunnel.
- Field meteorological icing stations.
- Cluster of advance computational software’s for advanced numerical simulations.
The research group has strong link with industry, universities and research organizations on national and international level and has been awarded with various national and international research grants.
