Abstract

The field investigation on a sea spray icing for a vertical steel pipe in an offshore structure has been performed. The icing shape was observed by a 35mm single-lens reflex camera and a CCD camera, and data of waves, air and water temperatures and wind velocities were recorded simultaneously. The main results are as follows: 1. Barrel-type and curtain-type icing shapes are observed for the pipe. 2. Icing occurs when the air temperature is lower than -4.0 - -5.0°C. 3. The location of icing is affected by the conditions of wave heights and wind velocities.
