Microwave Technique for Liquid Water Detection in Icing Applications 2019-01-1930
We have performed preliminary experiments as an initial step in demonstrating a non-intrusive, microwave-based measurement technique that can discriminate between air flows with- and without suspended water droplets in a wind tunnel at approximately 28 m/s. The objective of the paper, when complete, is to quantify the accuracy and precision of the method within the context of liquid water content measurement in ice crystal icing wind tunnel experiments.
