Abstract : The design and validation of adequate aircraft ice protection has evolved into a specialized and technically complex area were many engineering disciplines are involved; namely, aeronautical, electrical, mechanical, electronics, chemical simulations, mathematical modeling, airframe/engine systems design, atmospheric physics, and meteorology. Research advances in any one discipline have a direct effect on updating the procedural technology used in the design and validation of ice protection configurations, equipment, and systems. Periodically the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) provides documentation to assist regulatory certification teams and industry design engineers in standardizing testing and validating procedures. Examples of such documentation are Engineering Summary of Airframe Icing Technical Data, FAA report No. ADS-4 dated December 1968, and Engineering Summary of Powerplant Icing Technical Data, FAA Report No. RD-77-76 dated July 1977. Although most of the information contained in these reports is still valid, some is outdated, and more usable information is now available through recent research and experience. Therefore, this work was directed towards developing an updated and more comprehensive combined version of Report ADS-4 and RD-77-76 that includes reference material on ground and airborne icing facilities, simulation procedures, and analytical techniques. This document represents all types and classes of aircraft and is intended as a working tool for the designer and analyst of ice protection systems.
