Icing limit and wet-surface temperature variation for two airfoil shapes under simulated high-speed flight conditions
Description: Report presenting a study of the wet-surface temperature and stream conditions that result in ice-free surfaces for bodies in flight through icing clouds and a comparison of these experimental results with calculated results using the analytical method. Two symmetrical airfoil models were used in the investigation and testing occurred for a range of Mach numbers and pressure altitudes. Results regarding chordwise variation of pressure distribution, chordwise variation of recovery factor, results with the diamond airfoil and circular-arc airfoil, and the experimental and analytical results are presented.
