    Computational Analysis and Study of Atmospheric Ice Accretion on Different NACA Profile Series
    Author(s): Estheru Rani Talasila* and Balaji Ravi

    Aircraft icing and ice accretion pose great threat to the safety as the accumulated ice affects the aerodynamic profile of the airfoil hence extensive investigation is being done to understand ice accretion on airfoils. These studies help us understand how lift, drag, pressure and the velocity control is affected due to accumulated ice and how certain measures can be taken to ensure an efficient flight while minimizing risks posed to the safety. This paper focuses on the differences in the aerodynamic parameters on different NACA profiles and how each airfoil is affected by the ice accretion. The computational analysis of this research concentrates on the performance parameters of airfoils of NACA four, NACA five and NACA six digit series on conditions with clear ice, rime ice and without ice for different values of angle of attack. The key research objective of the paper was to inves.. Read More»
