Abstract:

This document presents the results of an FAA investigation to determine the effects of using de-icing, as opposed to anti-icing, in aircraft turbine engine inlets. A literature search was conducted. Ice protection equipment technology was assessed. This report describes the icingde-icing process, discusses de-ice system operation and performance and ice detector characteristics, and presents a method for determining the effects of the de- icing process on the turbine engine and its associated induction system. Keywords Aircraft icing, De-icing systems, Ice detectors, Anti-icing. MJM
