Details

The purpose of this the knowledge developed course was to bring together by universities and research institutions, aircraft manufacturers and the field of aircraft wing performance airlines, in real-life situations. As an introduction to the course, various meteorological phenomena influencing aircraft operations were described. Then, with reference to the performance of a clean wing operated in pure air, the effects of wing contamination or operation in non-ideal meteorological conditions were discussed. Thus, the effects of inflight ice formation on the wing were presented, as well as the progress made in their prediction. Also the effects of ground accumulated frost were treated, together with those of residual ground deicing fluids. Flying an aircraft through wind gradients or through turbulent atmosphere was then discussed. Measurements of airfoil performance in the presence of heavy rain were also presented.
