Icing of unprotected aircraft components is a major problem engineers are faced with during the development phase of an aircraft programme. Ice accretions as well as their shape have to be predicted in order to investigate their effect on aerodynamic flight safety and performance and to decide on the need for anti-or de-icing systems. The Fluid Dynamics Panel of AGARD sponsored a round-table discussion on the subject of Aircraft Icing, on 30 September 1977, in Ottawa, Canada, in conjunction with an FDP Symposium on Unsteady Aerodynamics. The seven papers presented, covering a broad spectrum of topics, are presented in this Advisory Report.
