Abstract:

The adverse weather systems for the Convair Model 990 CV-990 are similar and in many cases identical to the Convair Model 880 CV-880 systems. The following CV-880990 systems are identical compressor nose cone anti-icing, empennage de-icing, windshield anti-icing and antifogging, and windshield rain clearing. The systems unique to the CV-990 are anti-icing of the wing slats and inboard leading edge sections, engine inlets, ram air intakes on the horizontal stabilizer, and anti-ice control. A detailed description and performance analysis of the CV-990 wing slat, engine inlet and stabilizer intake anti-icing systems are presented. For systems common to the CV-880990, the system description is omitted and only the critical design point is analyzed. The purpose of the analysis is to demonstrate the adequacy of each system for safe flight through icing conditions, as defined in the Civil Air Regulations, Amendments 4b-2 and 4b-6. Author
