Abstract

The paper gives a survey on theoretical and experimental methods applied to determine the ice accretion and its effects on the respective aerodynamics on unprotected components of a modern jet transport aircraft. Together with an introductory outline of the mechanism and the basic mathematical equations and correlations ruling ice generation, the experience obtained for the European Airbus A300 is used to described these methods. In addition, an example for the prediction of trajectories of shedding ice particles as applied for the German jet transport aircraft VFW 614 is given.
