CFD and Icing Simulation

Using 2D or 3D CFD simulations, as well as the NASA icing code LEWICE, complex flow processes and ice formations can be accurately predicted, depicted, compared, and validated. This powerful combination allows for the early detection and evaluation of potentially critical icing conditions, enabling the adjustment and optimization of corresponding systems.


Key benefits include:

  • Prediction of ice formations and accumulations through 2D simulations using NASA's icing code LEWICE
  • Lift and drag coefficients for different flight phases/angles of attack
  • Pressure and velocity distributions
  • Visualizations and comparisons between ice-free and iced test objects

With AIIS, you can harness the power of advanced CFD software and NASA's renowned icing code to effectively manage icing risks, optimize performance, and ensure the safety and efficiency of your systems.
