Abstract : A computer model has been developed which is capable of simulating time-dependent rime icing on arbitrary two-dimensional structures, in potential flow. This paper describes many of the design considerations which went into the development of the model, to try to insure both its accuracy and efficiency. It also describes some of the tests which were made with existing experimental and theoretical data, in order to validate the model. Some initial results, which illustrate the potential and limitations of the model, are also presented.
