Project coordinator @ CEST: Dr. Carmen Vladu
IMPACT will explore the implementation of new passive anti-ice coatings and devices for the advanced rear end concept for the next generation of Airbus short and medium range aircraft. The project will also optimize its aerostructural properties and validate the technology with Icing Wind Tunnel tests.
The four main objectives of IMPACT are:
validate the accuracy of the 3D icing accretion simulations and the performance of passive anti-ice coating and devices by means of large scale icing wind tunnel (IWT) experimental tests.
