Finally, our first off-line meeting!

May 18-20th, 2022

SURFICE team was gathered “in person” for the first time from May 18th to 20th, 2022 at ISAE (Toulouse, France) hosted by Prof. Valerie Pommier-Budinger and ESR9 (Giulia Gastaldo). During these three days, the first mid term check meeting was done in the presence of project officer, 13 ESRs and representatives of beneficiaries and partners. The event was followed by technical workshops and visits from ISAE-SUPAERO and ONERA facilities, focusing on icing assessment and protection systems.

Check out some of the things the team is working on:

This is how freezing of water droplets looks through an infrared camera.
Exploratory experiments for obtaining superhydrophobic surfaces
This is how ice adheres to surfaces with different hydrophilicity

First synchronization meeting

23, 24 February, 2022
Our last synchronization meeting was very interesting and useful to identify potential collaborations between projects that will help us to understand the icing phenomena.
From ice nucleation modeling and materials developments until aircraft prototypes test under extreme conditions
We are looking forward meet in person soon!
