World-Class Computational Fluid Dynamics for aerospace applications

Icing simulation is now an essential part of aerospace design and development. Accumulated snow and ice can seriously affect performance (added weight, pressure loss, drag, lift, etc.), safety (structural damage, exceeded load limits, stability, control, etc.) and cost (fuel efficiency, repairs, etc).

Compared to a “one product fits all” approach, ICON provides flexible, cost effective, results-orientated project consulting and development options for icing simulation bespoke to your needs and objectives.

The big difference is that we are engineers first, not just expert coders with exceptional software. ICON engineers are fully integrated into the working environment of businesses through on-site support activities. This ensures that a broad knowledge of the technical objective of the analyses is also supported by experience of how new processes and designs will be integrated within the aircraft development programme as a whole. Not every CFD software provider is willing or able to do this.

Trusted and proven over decades, ICON has become the preferred option by some of the world’s largest Aeronautical manufacturers and governmental space organisations. We have delivered CAE simulations in many different areas of expertise including but is not limited to icing simulation, design and optimisation of aircraft cabins climate, rocket launchers external aerodynamics evaluation, etc. As such, we can fulfil both specific and holistic project requirements, saving time and money.
