Introduction of an Online Ice Accretion Database

International Conference on Icing of Aircraft, Engines, and Structures
Authors Abstract
In the course of the Horizon 2020 project ICE GENESIS of the European Union, an experimental database was developed to host documentation of icing experiments. The database serves as a source of information for numerical code development and validation as well as future test matrix design, IPS layout and development and wing design. Several legacy data icing cases have been included into the database, which are partly publicly available. Furthermore, the database will serve as the main platform for dissemination of public results of icing cases after and during the project ICE GENESIS. The database itself provides detailed information about the test configurations and the icing wind tunnel. More specifically, CAD data, ice protection system characteristics if applicable, installation in the test facility, instrumentation, test matrix, generated aero-icing conditions and test results are included. Within the ICE GENESIS project, the documentation of the resulting ice accretion is done by the application of 3D scanning systems, which allows detailed ice shape evaluation and validation of 3D numerical tools performances. The database covers a large set of representative configurations (2D and 3D wings, engine inlets, cylinders) and will complement worldwide existing databases.
