Simulating Aircraft Engine and Frame Icing

This webinar covers the simulation of aircraft icing on surfaces, sensors and engines from high-altitude ice crystals and supercooled large droplets (SLD). You will learn how ANSYS solutions help you to develop regulatory-compliant products faster, test earlier and produce better solutions. Topics include:

  • 3D icing simulation outputs and compliance with the FAA’s Appendices C, D and O
  • Tracking of loss of lift, momentary imbalance and disruption of control on external surfaces
  • Management of air intake obstruction, break off and ingestion, and ice crystal formation on aircraft engines
