The development of future aircrafts is driven substantially by decreasing fuel consumption and CO2 emission. One challenge for surfaces is the desired property of ice resistance. This presentation provides an overview of icing test methods to analyze the freezing delay, droplet impact, runback icing and ice adhesion on aerodynamic surfaces.
