On-Ground Cold Soak Fuel Frost Modeling

In this paper a cold soak fuel frost modeling for an aircraft wing tank is presented. Numerical prediction is compared with experimental data and a qualitative verification for the frost formation and melting is also shown. The numerical simulation showed good agreement with experimental observations. The model was used to define, through a Monte Carlo analysis, two different frost formations whose impact on aircraft handling was evaluated by flight tests using representative grits.
