Event description



By instructors who have teamed up on engineering projects, have certified aircraft and have published scientifically together!

Prof. Wagdi G. HABASHI, Director CFD Lab-McGill University, and President CERTIF-ICE

Dr. Alberto PUEYO, Icing Lead, Bombardier Aerospace

Mr. John P. DOW, Sr., DOW International L.L.C., DER and former FAA Senior Specialist

Participate in this best-in-class international icing course!

For an aircraft, rotorcraft or jet engine to obtain a type design certification, it must be demonstrated that it can sustain safe flight into known or inadvertent icing conditions. OEMs thus embark on complex icing certification campaigns that involve CFD, experimental wind and icing tunnel testing (EFD), all three being considered “simulation”, prior to final demonstration of compliance through Flight Testing in Natural Icing (FFD).

Modern CFD-Icing methods, working as a direct extension of CFD-Aero technologies, have become an indispensable, if not a pri- mary tool, in the certification process. Such an integrated CFD-Aero + CFD-Icing + Testing approach provides a cost-effective aid-to- design-and-to-certification, when made part of a well-structured compliance plan.

Using “advanced and realistic” 3D icing simulations, based on modern highly validated models, allows the inclusion of icing re- quirements at the aerodynamic design stage, a more comprehensive exploration of the combined aircraft/icing envelopes, opti- mized ice protection system design, and targeted/focused/reduced wind and icing tunnels and flight tests. The end result is a faster and safer product that is easier to certificate.

This course illustrates the state-of-the-art of CFD applications in icing simulations and links theory to application. It is structured to be of equal interest to aerodynamicists, icing, environmental systems and flight simulation engineers, regulators and Designated Engineering Representatives.

Knowledge of CFD is not essential. The lectures cover the major aspects of in-flight icing simulation, ice protection systems analysis, handling quality issues, as well as current (APP C, D & O) icing certification regulations.

The instructors bring an amalgam of knowledge, as scientists who have produced codes in current use and practicing engineers with certification experience, along with cost-effective simulation methods for certification of aircraft for flight into known icing.

Attendees will be provided with a comprehensive set of notes, refreshed annually with the latest technological advances. The number of attendees is limited to 30, so come and meet the who’s-who of the aerospace industry.

Course and Accommodations Information:

The course will be held from May 8 to May 12, 2017, at La Citadelle, 410 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal H3A 1B3.

Registration Fees:

1 person: $1800 USD
2 persons from the same organization: $1700 USD each
3 persons from the same organization: $1600 USD each

Early Bird Registration:

Before January 31, 2017: $1600 USD

Before March 31, 2017: $1700 USD
