Abstract:Part of the master curriculum Mechanical Engineering is to do an internship in either an industrial or research environment. The internship is a great opportunity for students to gain insight in the working life after their study and to put their knowledge into practice. This is an excellent chance to not only work at a company for a while, but also to go abroad and live in a different culture. To experience working abroad eventually led to my choice of an internship at CIRA (International Aerospace Research Centre) in Capua, Italy. During the months July to October I have been researching the ice accretion on a propeller of an aircraft numerically. This report describes the process of my research to study ice accretion and an anti-icing system as well. I would like to thank my supervisor from the University of Twente, Harry Hoeijmakers of the Engineering in Fluid Dynamics group and Giuseppe Mingione from the CIRA Fluid Mechanics department for all their efforts to realize my internship at CIRA. Furthermore, I would like to thank Francesco Petrosino for his close guidance during my research and always being able to answer questions when possible. My time at CIRA was very pleasant and the ambiance and experiences very useful for my future job(s) and studying.
