The MUSIC-haic project was a research and innovation action funded by the EU through the H2020 programme which aimed to build on past research projects and existing multi-disciplinary tools to provide the aeronautic industry with an Ice Crystal Icing (ICI) numerical capability usable for both design and certification purposes.

MUSIC-haic had a total budget of 5.1 million euros of which 4.8 million financed by the EU.
The four-and-a-half-year long MUSIC-haic project ultimately aimed to deliver a better physical understanding of mixed phase and ice crystal accretion phenomena, a set of improved and better validated models for all the underlying elementary physical processes, as well as 3D multiphysics mature simulation tools (TRL5-6) able to simulate ICI in real conditions and to support pre-design, design and certification of engines and aircraft.

Objectives of the MUSIC-haic project

The technical objectives of the MUSIC-haic project were to:

  • Obtain complementary experimental data to fill remaining gaps for model development and validation
  • Complete the development of Ice Crystal Icing (ICI) models
  • Implement the ICI models in existing industrial 3D multi-disciplinary numerical tools
  • Perform extensive validation of the new ICI numerical capability through comparison of numerical results with academic and industrial data (ranging from simple geometric configurations, intermediate complexity tests, to industrial test cases) to reach TRL6
