    Electrically Heated Composite Leading Edges for Aircraft Anti-Icing Applications

    F. De Rosa1, A. Esposito1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.8, No.1, pp. 107-128, 2012, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2011.008.107

    Abstract An investigation was conducted to evaluate the feasibility and the performance of an electrically heated composite leading edge for aircraft anti-icing applications. A prototype was designed, manufactured and equipped with a High Temperature composite leading edge with embedded Ni alloy resistance fed by a DC power supply unit. Running wet and fully evaporative functional modes have been verified both analytically and experimentally with reasonable agreement. A room temperature thermal endurance test has been run for 104 cycles aiming to preliminary verify the integrity of the composite laminate after the imposed thermal stress. The EHCLE system (Electrical Heated Composite Leading Edge)… More >
