Settling velocities of small ice crystals

Article English OPEN
MICHAELI, GABRIEL (2011)

Settling velocities, masses and external dimensions were determined experimentally for small freely falling ice crystals grown for about 100 s at 12 different temperatures within the range −3.4 to −20°C. The corresponding terminal velocities were calculated using the above measurements, together with the empirical Be-Re relationships, deduced from previous model experiments. Reasonably good agreement was found between theory and experiment.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1977.tb00737.x
