Abstract

THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL INVESTIGATE, THEORETICALLY AND EXPERIMENTALLY, THE SENSING OF ICE ON PAVEMENT USING MILLIMETER WAVE REMOTE SENSING TECHNIQUES. SURFACE ROUGHNESS, ANGLE-OFINCIDENCE, RANGE OF DETECTION, MINIMUM ICE THICKNESS AS WELL AS PREDICTION ALGORITHMS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. CONTAMINANTS AND OTHER VARIABLES WILL BE CONSIDERED.
