Smart Icing Systems Flight Simulation web site.
This research is geared toward the simulation of aircraft icing. The
aerodynamic effects of ice accretion are modeled and new methods of
warning the pilots are being developed. It is part of the larger Smart Icing Systems Project at

Includes a collection of over 15 aircraft dynamics models for use in
the free open-source FlightGear flight simulator.
Aircraft current modeled include:
Schweizer 1-36 Sprite,
1903 Wright Flyer,
Several GNU GPL external models that can be used FlightGear. In order
to fly these models, their corresponding flight dynamics models still
need to be developed (some are already done). 2/20/03
