2010 INCAS Bulletin  
The phenomenon of in-flight icing may affect all types of aircraft. The paper deals with the development of the computational wing airfoil ice accretion prediction code Ice. Presented code versions enable computational rime ice and glaze ice accretion prediction on single and multi-element airfoils in acceptable time of solution. There are presented results of rime ice and glaze ice accretion predictions and compared with current ice accretion prediction codes. Various cases of predicted ice
