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.
The course will be held from May 8 to May 12, 2017, at La Citadelle, 410 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal H3A 1B3.
Rooms at La Citadelle are $124 CAD (approx. $95 USD, 85 €, 630 RMB) + taxes, per night, single or double occupancy.
1 person: $1800 USD
