Validation of a Hot-Air Anti-icing Simulation Code
This paper presents CHT2D, a 2D hot air anti-icing simulation tool developed by the Advanced Aerodynamics group of Bombardier Aerospace. The tool has been developed from two main modules: the ice prediction code CANICE and the Navier-Stokes solver NSU2D, which is used to solve the hot air internal flow. A “weak” coupling beween the two modules based on function calls and information exchange has been priviledged. Three validation test cases are presented: for dry air conditions. Predictions from CHT2D agree quite well with the experiments. Preliminary results are also presented for a test case in icing conditions for different heat loads from the anti-icing system, to study the effect on the accumulated ice.
