New simulation tool readied

Airbus is working with the University of Applied Science in Graz, Austria, on an R&D project to develop a new simulation tool for predicting gradual accumulation of snow and ice in air systems.

"We are looking at ways to improve the performance of aircraft cooling systems," a spokeswoman confirms. "This can be achieved by implementing changes to the system design that will reduce the build up of snow and ice in air systems."

The new simulation tool will use available computational fluid dynamics codes and high performance computation resources. "The new predictive tool and simulation data will enable Airbus engineers to implement design changes, for the first time on commercial airliners and develop further enhancements to future aircraft cooling systems," she adds.....
