Abstract:A main problem in aviation is the formation of ice on aircrafts which can ultimately lead to aircraft failure. There are several de-icing and anti-icing systems to protect the aircraft against ice accretion, but in practice these systems' performances are limited. In order to facilitate the development of anti-icing and de-icing methods, it is important to be able to simulate ice accretion using CFD analysis. Existing icing predictions using CFD software were mainly focused on the prediction of accretion of rime ice, for which there's no need for the creation of an intermediate liquid film layer. In this report the OpenFOAM software package is used and evaluated for modeling of a surface film layer, as a basis for glaze ice accretion simulations.
