Content
This paper presents experimental ice accretion measurements alongside numerical simulations, using the National Research Council Canada’s morphogenetic approach, on a pitot probe geometry at varying icing conditions. In previous publications, the morphogenetic approach for the numerical simulation of ice accretion has shown promise for pitot probe applications, potentially reducing the number of wind tunnel entries, and therefore cost, of the development cycle. An experimental campaign has been completed, providing ice shapes on a representative pitot probe model. Comparison of the experimental and numerical ice shapes indicate that the morphogenetic model is able to generate the complex ice shapes seen experimentally for real-world icing conditions on a fully 3D geometry, closely matching both ice features and total ice thicknesses.
