Ice crystal icing in gas turbine engines

Abstract:

High altitude ice particles can accrete inside the core compression system of turbofan engines in cruise and descent. This can lead to severe in-flight events including blade damage, surge and flameout. This thesis describes the development and validation of a new comprehensive computational model to aid prediction of ice crystal icing in turbofan compressors. The Ice Crystal Icing ComputationaL Environment (ICICLE) delivers a step change in modelling of the phenomenon compared to the ...
