Application: CFD Used to Study Ice Build-Up
Posted Tue February 12, 2002 @06:45PM

Application The build-up of ice on aircraft wings is a dangerous condition which has been the cause of several accidents. The condition is so hazardous that the FAA has dedicated a full section to certification of aircraft under icing conditions.

At a recent FLUENT Users' Group Meeting, Dr. David Kohlman presented a short course on aircraft icing. The course covered the environmental conditions responsible for icing and a number of deicing and anti-icing systems in use.

Traditionally, aircraft icing was studied by performing experiments in an icing wind tunnel or by flying an aircraft in the wake of a tanker aircraft spraying water droplets. These methods are expensive and time consuming which lead researchers to computational modeling.
