• Streamlining Aircraft Icing Simulations
    Aircraft icing is a major concern in aircraft development because it can degrade aerodynamic and engine performance, produce false indications on flight instruments, and prevent correct operation of control surfaces, landing gear, and brakes. This presentation will discuss simulation of aircraft icing topics, from design of thermal ice protection systems to prediction of accreted ice shapes and performance degradation. Various challenges, modeling...

    Listen to Joel Chen, Imperial College London, discuss STAR-CCM+ as an Airfoil Icing Analysis Tool.
  • Analysis of a wing leading edge and anti-icing protection : in-flight icing, caused by accretion of super cooled liquid water droplets, can lead to a drastic change in aircraft performance and numerical simulation of icing behavior is critical to ensure flight performance of aircraft over varying icing conditions and flow conditions.

Aircraft icing is a major concern in aircraft development because it can degrade aerodynamic and engine performance, produce false indications on flight instruments, and prevent correct operation of control surfaces, landing gear, and brakes. Historically, such simulations have been rather segmented, with much time and effort spent passing information between various narrowly-focused codes. STAR-CCM+ offers the Dispersed Multiphase (DMP) model for icing simulations and now allows modeling anti-icing systems and ice accretion in a single tool with fully-coupled physics and a consistent CAD-to-solution process. Design better and safer aircrafts faster with CD-adapco's icing solutions. One Tool. One Model. One Process.
