Computational icing simulations of a hybrid, swept-wing model in the NASA IRT are presented. The results of these simulations are compared to those for the same icing conditions conducted on the full-scale reference wing. The effects of tunnel sidewalls, attachment line position, and altitude are considered. A discussion of icing scaling and the results of one scaling approach are given. The variation of impingement and ice shape with span in the tunnel for different angles of attack and ap deection are presented.
