Abstract:

The secondary aim of the work Aircraft Icing Processes, now in its second year, is the design construction, and testing of an icing simulator, and a system for measuring parameters. The purpose of this is to obtain a system capable of producing ice on a circular, or aerodynamic profile, section under known conditions in order to check experimentally the analytical results obtained in the primary aim of the work theoretical studies. Thus, in the simulator, we have attempted to obtain incidental flow conditions on the test model as similar as possible to those set out in the mathematical model of the theoretical study a laminar bidimensional incompressible, airstream.
