Recent Advances in the LEWICE Icing Model 2015-01-2094

This paper will describe two recent modifications to the LEWICE software. The version described is under development and not ready for release. First, a capability for modeling ice crystals and mixed phase icing has been modified based on recent experimental data. Modifications have been made to the ice particle bouncing and erosion model. This capability has been added as part of a larger effort to model ice crystal ingestion in aircraft engines. Comparisons have been made to ice crystal ice accretions performed in the NRC Research Altitude Test Facility (RATFac). Second, modifications were made to the runback model based on data and observations from thermal scaling tests performed in the NRC Altitude Icing Tunnel. The runback model was modified to match film models used in the open literature. An empirical water shedding was also implemented. Comparisons were made to thermal deicing data taken at the NRC Altitude Icing Tunnel.
