CH148 Icing Flight Test Performance Data Correlation 2019-01-1991

This paper presents results of correlation of an empirical code to CH148 Cyclone® icing flight test performance data. Predicted icing main rotor torque penalties, generated using the Sikorsky Generalized Rotor Performance (GRP) model with the integral DELICE icing performance module, are compared to flight test results. DELICE methodology adjustments are shown that lead to CH148 test data correlation and improved correlation to previously-examined S-92A™ icing flight test performance data. Finally, a comparison of results between GRP and Sikorsky-Maryland FreeWake is shown, providing an indication of the influence of rotor wake methodology on icing model correlation.
