Hydrodynamics and Thermodynamics of Ice Particle Accretion

Daniel Martin Kintea
Icing in warm environments, e.g. in aircraft engines or heated measurement probes, occurs if airplanes fly through areas with high amounts of atmospheric ice crystals. Ingested into the warm engine, they start to melt, resulting in an airflow laden with mixed-phase particles consisting of water and ice. Liquid water deposits on component surfaces, which enables ice particles to adhere to them, forming ice accretion of considerable thickness. Such an accretion reduces reliability, power and efficiency...
