Welcome to the website of the Ice Prediction Workshop. We are currently organizing the second workshop which is planned to take place during the SAE International 2023 Conference on Icing of Aircraft, Engines, and Structures in Vienna. The first workshop was conducted as the 1st AIAA Ice Prediction Workshop in 2021 during the Aviation Forum (online).
firstname.lastname@example.org: To subscribe to the workshop mailing list send an empty e-mail to this address.
The main goal of these workshops is to assess state-of-the-art of icing prediction tools with 2D and 3D experimental data. We aim to provide an impartial forum to evaluating the effectiveness of icing methods and to identify the areas needing additional research and development.
