This paper describes a physics-based icing tool for aircraft engines, which have small components compared to the wing geometry of an aircraft. The tool consists of an icing code, viscous CFD software and mesh generator to build ice shapes incrementally to form the final shape. This multi-layered process was developed to predict ice shapes in components with high-pressure gradient flows as found inside engine flow passages. Good agreement was found between experimental and predicted ice shapes for engine inlet guide vanes and different wing geometries.
