Abstract

Previous ultrasonic de-icing research on rotorcraft has shown that a multi-frequency tone burst actuation scheme has increased the coverage of the deicing system. The physical mechanisms responsible for this increase in de-icing performance are modeled using finite elements and tested using both freezer ice on a titanium plate and impact ice under rotation in the AERTS facility on a NACA 0015 airfoil structure. Burst actuation techniques are shown to have up to 400% increase in de-icing potential when compared to long tone actuation methods.
