A self-deicing road system consisting of a carbon nano-fiber polymer (CNFP) thermal source, an AlN-ceramic insulated encapsulation layer, a multiwall carbon nanotube (MWCNT)/cement-based thermal conduction layer and a thermally insulated substrate was proposed in this study. The effects of ambient temperature, heat flux density and ice thickness on the deicing of the self-deicing system were investigated in chilled. The efficiency, repeatability, cost and feasibility of the self-deicing road system in both deicing and snow-melting applications were analyzed. Indices for evaluating the deicing or snow-melting performance of the self-deicing road system were adopted in this study.
