MUSIC-haic participated in a joint session with two other icing projects ICE GENESIS and SENS4ICE at the SAE2023 Conference in Vienna, Austria.

The MUSIC-haic Final Public Workshop was successfully held on 15-17 February 2023 at ONERA in Toulouse.

The Final Public Workshop of the MUSIC-haic project will be held at ONERA in Toulouse on 15-17 February.

MUSIC-haic held its final internal review at GE Aviation's Research Centre Garching bei München on 5-6 December 2022.

Congratulations to Yasir A. Malik from TU Braunschweig, Germany won first place in the ASE Student Paper Competition at Aviation 2022 for his work in MUSIC-haic!

The MUSIC-haic project was well represented at the 2022 AIAA Icing Conference in Chicago (27 June - 1 July 2022) with four abstracts accepted. 

MUSIC-haic partners finally met for the first time in two years for an intern review on 28-29 April 2022.


In order to understand and model ice crystal icing (ICI) of aircraft turbofan engines, it is important to have a good understanding of every involved physical sub-process. One of these sub-processes is the fragmentation of ice particles which is shown in the high-speed videos produced by the icing lab of TU Darmstadt.

Last June, the SAE International Conference on Icing of Aircraft, Engines, and Structures took place in Minneapolis (USA). This quadrennial conference is where industry and academia join to discuss their latest results related to icing.

New trends, knowledge, and solutions were discussed in more than 160 oral presentations that dove into every aspect of icing. Many MUSIC-haic partners attended the conference presenting and chairing sessions, the two researchers Pierre Trontin (ONERA, WP2) and Norbert Karpen (Airbus CRT, WP1) were awarded with the Outstanding Oral Presentation Award for their contribution in the sessions “Appendix C: Modeling - Ice Accretion & Film” and "Test facilities: Icing Wind Tunnel Instrumentation".

The project partners met on 9th and 10th September 2019 in Darmstadt, Germany (meeting organisation supported by our partner TU Darmstadt).
