Public discussion on Dartmouth-developed de-icing technology

Posted 03/08/01

Join the researchers from Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering and the commercial partners from BF Goodrich, Torvec, Inc., The Quantum Group and Utek Corporation as they discuss plans for new, non-chemical de-icing technologies for windshields, roads, airplanes, and power lines.

This is an excellent opportunity to become familiar with Research Professor of Engineering Victor Petrenko's work and its potential applications. The meeting will open with a series of short research presentations by Petrenko, colleagues and students. This will be followed by a question and answer session and then a general discussion of the research progress to date, potential directions for future research and possible collaborations for technology transition. This highly innovative, cutting edge research has potential applications throughout industry, but should most directly benefit aviation, general transportation, electric utilities and the military.
