Implementing Conductive Concrete with Renewable Energy to Develop Anti-Icing Airfield Runways

The objective of this research project is to develop an anti-ice runway slab by implementing a photovoltaic energy system with conductive concrete. A test slab will be constructed at the University of Arkansas' Engineering Research Center to substantiate the methodology. The test slab with be monitored for ambient and internal temperature throughout the 2010-2011 winter season. In addition, a preliminary numerical model will be generated to determine an anti-ice slab's photovoltaic energy system requirements as a function of airfield location.
