Total Temperature Measurements in Icing Cloud Flows using a Rearward Facing Probe 2019-01-1923
A series of new fundamental tests, referred to as Fundamental Test #2 (FT #2), were recently performed at PSL to study the ice accretion and erosion processes on a NACA 0012 airfoil, under controlled simulated icing cloud flows. As part of these tests, the flow’s aerothermal and cloud characterization were performed utilizing multiple probes to determine ice/water content and its spatial distribution, ice crystal particle size distribution, melt ratio, total temperature, and humidity levels in the test section. This paper will focus on the total temperature and humidity results. Preliminary results are presented here, and a full analysis will follow in the full paper.
