ICING COURSE 2010: Effective Use of CFD for In-flight Icing Certification

Posted By: Martin Aube

Date: October 18 to 22, 2010

Location: Gyeongsang National University, Jinju, South Korea

In-flight ice formation on aircraft, rotorcraft, jet engines, UAV, detectors, antennae and optronics surfaces can significantly affect performance, handling qualities and safety. OEM or supplementary certification campaigns, long and tedious, can be greatly helped with modern icing CFD.

“Modern” icing CFD is defined as tools that are an extension of aerodynamic design and analysis technologies. Such an integrated aerodynamic/icing approach is proving itself a cost-effective aid-to-design-and-to-certification when made part of a well-structured compliance plan. Using “advanced and realistic” 3D simulations based on modern physical models allows a more comprehensive exploration of the combined aircraft/icing envelopes, optimized ice protection system design, and targeted/focused/reduced icing tunnel and flight tests. The end result is a more cost-effective and safer product that is easier to certificate.

This course presents the state-of-the-art of icing CFD by linking theory to applications. It is structured to be of equal interest to aerodynamics, icing, systems and flight simulation engineers, regulators and DERs.

Detailed knowledge of CFD is not essential. The lectures cover the major aspects of in-flight icing simulation: airflow, water impingement, ice accretion, anti-icing and de-icing calculations; handling quality issues; CFD-assisted certification.

The instructors bring a wealth of knowledge, as scientists who have produced codes in current use, practicing engineers who certify aircraft for major manufacturers, and former regulators who have closely monitored certification campaigns and have a deep understanding of safety issues.
