Abstract:
Icing of the fuselage and blades may occur when the helicopter is flying in the icing area. If ice accretion occurs in the ADS(Air Data System) of the fuselage, normal speed and altitude information are lost, making it difficult to flight. When windshield icing occurs, the view of pilot is limited and flight is difficult. Also, the ice accretion of the blades deforms the outer shape of the blades (Ref. 1) and makes the dynamic characteristics unstable due to an abnormal weight increase, resulting in deterioration of performance, deterioration of maneuverability, and structural instability. To avoid this, an anti-icing or de-icing system is required. Therefore, if the aircraft is not fitted with a proper anti-icing system, it is not possible to operate under icing conditions. However, it is difficult to design a proper anti-icing system considering the position of anti-icing protection area and icing phenomenon due to limitation of electric power, weight, thermal damage temperature limit, shape and so on. It is essential of understanding of anti-icing mechanism for selection and design of appropriate anti-ice system considering configuration (impingement limit, collection efficiency), material (thermal fatigue limit, heating source) and icing amount (collection efficiency, stagnation point). This paper introduces the preparation procedure (analysis & simulation, design, scaled model test) of icing certification test and the artificial/natural icing flight test method for proving helicopter icing through KUH case, and describes the characteristics of each system for the de/anti-icing system design of the helicopter, the computational analysis method, comparison with the test result, and the improvement method of the de/anti-icing system.
