New cold weather facilities established to test coatings that mitigate ice adhesion, corrosion
Olivier Montmayeur, a research mechanical engineer at U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL), along with two other CRREL employees, installs the weather and visual monitoring station on Treat Island in the Bay of Fundy near Freeport, Maine, November 2022. The effort was part of a project led by CRREL research materials engineer, Dr. Emily Asenath-Smith, to establish testing facilities in some of the most inhospitable climates in the U.S. The facilities will test coatings that may mitigate ice adhesion and corrosion.
