Droplet Impingement and Ice Accretion Computer Codes
This document provides information, guidelines, and practices for the application, use, and administration of two-dimensional and three-dimensional droplet impingement and ice accretion computer codes. The codes provide computational simulations of inflight icing that predict droplet trajectory, water loading, and ice accretion on aircraft components. These ice accretion characteristics are used during the aircraft design and certification process.
Rationale: The information, guidelines, state of the art of the tools and best practices need to be updated to reflect most recent icing code developments, new certification requirements (e.g. SLD and Ice crystals) and the wider use of numerical simulation in industrial applications.
