CFD Events Calendar, Event Record #22725

Simulation Methods Used for the In-flight Icing Certification of Aircraft, Rotorcraft and Jet Engines
The course covers the fundamentals of icing, the certification process, and the role of CFD as an increasingly acceptable means of compliance. In the afternoon sessions, demonstrations are made using FENSAP-ICE, and the course has proven to be an important source of sales of the product, and a great forum for potential users to interact and exchange points of view.
Date: April 4, 2016 - April 8, 2016
Location: 3407 Rue Peel H3A 1W7, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

For an aircraft, rotorcraft or jet engine to obtain a type 
design certification, it must be demonstrated that it can 
sustain safe flight into known or inadvertent icing 
conditions. OEMs thus embark on complex icing certification 
campaigns that involve CFD, wind and icing tunnel testing, 
all three being considered “simulation”, prior to final 
demonstration of compliance through Natural Icing Flight 
Using “advanced and realistic” 3D icing simulations, based 
on modern highly validated models, allows the inclusion of 
icing re-quirements at the aerodynamic design stage, a more 
comprehensive exploration of the combined aircraft/icing 
envelopes, opti-mized ice protection system design, and 
targeted/focused/reduced wind and icing tunnels and flight 
tests. The end result is a fast-er and safer product that 
is easier to certificate. 
This course illustrates the state-of-the-art of CFD 
applications in icing simulations and links theory to 
application. It is structured to be of equal interest to 
aerodynamicists, icing, environmental systems and flight 
simulation engineers, regulators and Designated Engineering 
nowledge of CFD is not essential. The lectures cover the 
major aspects of in-flight icing simulation, ice protection 
system equipment, handling quality issues, as well as 
current (APP C, D & O) icing certification regulations.
The instructors bring an amalgam of knowledge, as 
scientists who have produced codes in current use and 
practicing engineers with experience in cost-effective 
methods for the simulation and certification of aircraft 
for flight into known icing conditions.
Attendees will be provided with a very large and detailed 
set of notes, refreshed annually with the latest 
technological advances. The number of attendees may be 
limited, so come and meet the who’s-who of the aerospace 
The course will be held at the Best Western Ville-Marie 
Hotel & Suites, Quebec, Canada, from April 4th to April 
8th, 2016. Attendees are invited to bring their own laptops 
on which tutorial software will be installed. The tutorials 
will be run on your own PC.
