Scope:

This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) contains information on most of the major icing simulation ground facilities. An effort was made to obtain data from as many facilities as possible over a two year time period. The data in this document represents the state of the facilities in calendar year 1996. Facilities are constantly changing and upgrading and, therefore, some facility specifications may change during the life of this report.

Of the 27 facilities described in this report, the primary use is split with approximately half for engine testing and half for wind tunnel testing. The facilities are limited to ground facilities and, therefore, icing tankers have not been included.

The primary purpose of this document is to document the capabilities of the world''s major icing simulation ground facilities. This report should be very useful for an organization interested in selecting a facility for a particular test. The usual information on facility test section size, speed, cloud parameters, etc. are provided for this purpose, along with a contact person at each facility. However, it is the purpose of this report to go beyond the information found in a list of facilities.
