The NASA Lewis Research Center is presently conducting an aircraft icing research program, the major thrust of which, is to advance technologies that improve our ability to model the icing phenomenon and its effect on aircraft. The approach employs three interrelated elements: analysis; wind tunnel experiments; and, considerable flight testing in natural icing clouds. This paper presents a brief overview of this program with emphasis on recent accomplishments.
