Simulation Methods Used for the In-flight Icing Certification of Aircraft, Rotorcraft and Jet Engines, Apr 2016, Canada

Posted By: Jenny Habashi
Date:Fri, 11 Dec 2015, 10:13 p.m.

Canada, April 4, 2016

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.



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.
