Methods and apparatus are provided for predicting ice formation on and shedding from blades of an air cycle machine ("ACM") turbine. The method comprises generating operational condition data representative of ACM turbine operating conditions using a software model of the ACM, determining an amount of ice formation on the blades of the ACM turbine, and determining an amount of ice shed from the blades of the ACM turbine. The apparatus comprises means for generating operational condition data representative of ACM turbine operating conditions using a soft...
What is claimed is: 1. A method for predicting ice formation on and shedding from blades of an air cycle machine ("ACM") turbine for an aircraft, the method comprising the steps of: (a) generating operational condition data representative of ACM turbine operating conditions using a software model of the ACM, the software model of the ACM configured to simulate operating conditions of the ACM turbine using operating conditions of the aircraft; (b) determining an amount of ice formation on the blades of the ACM turbine, using the generated operational con...
