Announcements Newmerical will present a course on the Effective Use of CFD for In-Flight Icing Certification on April 13 to 17, 2009 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, USA.

Aircraft, Rotorcraft, Jet Engines and UAVs flying through icing clouds encounter the problem of ice formation on critical surfaces, on nacelles, in engines and on appendages (probes/detectors/antennae/optronics). This can jeopardize flight by altering aerodynamic performance and reducing handling qualities.
