Icing protection for a turbojet transport airplane : heating requirements methods of protection, and performance penalties

Thomas F. Gelder, James P. Lewis, Stanley L. Koutz
Jan 1953

The problems associated with providing icing protection for the critical components of a typical turbojet transport airplane operating over a range of probable icing conditions were analyzed and discussed. Heating requirements for several thermal methods of protection are evaluated and the airplane performance penalties associated with providing this protection from various energy sources are assessed.
