About the research

This project will complete the testing and deployment of an advanced system for forecasting frost on bridges in Iowa by application to four bridges in central Iowa. Our method employs a widely used research and operational numerical model for weather forecasting and includes a bridge-surface temperature balance equation for specific forecasts of bridge surface temperature.
