In-Flight Icing Simulation: 3-D CFD-Icing is Here to Stay

3-D computational fluid dynamics simulation of in-flight icing (3-D CFD-icing) has achieved considerable advances in the last decade , and many dynamic OEMs and second tier suppliers are using them to speed icing certification. Yet, others remain on the fence, using technologies from three decades ago.

The different characteristics of ice, at different locations on an aircraft:
can that be done in 2-D?
