Improve and validate existing 3D numerical tools to predict ice accretion in App C, App O and Snow conditions.

Upgrade and calibrate icing wind tunnels to allow reproduction of:

  • Supercooled Large Droplets (SLD) in FZDZ (Freezing drizzle) conditions.
  • Snow icing conditions
  • Additionally, to assess the potential of current icing wind tunnels to represent SLD in FZRA (Freezing rain) conditions.

Build a large-scale experimental database on representative 3D configurations to be used as a solid reference (“ground truth”) for future numerical tools validation.

The ICE GENESIS project is being carried out by a consortium (led by AIRBUS OPERATION SAS) made up of 30 EU and non-EU partners from 9 countries (France, Austria, Italy, UK, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada and Japan).

Each ICE GENESIS partner offers the multi-disciplinary expertise which is required in order to impact the aeronautical sector and to provide the expertise needed to meet the expectations from the participants, the industry and the European Commission.
