AeroTex is delighted to announce that Ariane Vieira has joined our team! Ariane will be leading our 3D numerical code development under the FFG funded project “3D-ICESIM”. Exciting times at AeroTex!
AeroTex is part of a consortium which has submitted an exciting proposal under the latest FFG TAKE OFF funding call. A funding decision is due in July 2023, so watch this space!
The 3D-ICESIM project aims to develop a well validated 3D icing code solution, which will be of great benefit to the development process of new ice protection systems and innovative aircraft. It will help to reduce the required test effort in icing wind tunnels and flight tests substantially, as well as improve and speed up the development process.
The project is a collaboration which is led by FH Joanneum and includes AIIS, RTA and Seoul National University as partners alongside AeroTex.
Project 3D-ICESIM has received funding from the Federal Ministry of Austria for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) as part of the Austrian Aeronautics Programme TAKE OFF via the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) under project number FO999894155.
AeroTex is pleased to welcome Wolfgang Breitfuß to the team! Wolfgang has joined as an Aircraft Icing Engineer, initally on a part-time basis, to support our many on-going projects. Wolfgang will be using his extensive knowledge to support icing wind tunnel test campaigns and also to further develop the numerical analysis capability.
The PrISM project (Propeller Ice Shed Measurement) aims to develop an improved test capability for large-scale propellers at the RTA icing test facility, as well as developing test methods for energy measurement of shed ice and numerical simulation tools for ice accretion and shedding. AeroTex are leading the project, which runs from January 2022 to June 2024. Further information on the project can be found here.

AeroTex is pleased to welcome Bernhard Reinholz to the team! Bernhard has joined as an Aircraft Icing Engineer to support our many on-going projects. Bernhard’s main task will be working on the Austrian leading research project, JOICE.
AeroTex participated in the 1st AIAA Ice Prediction Workshop, running from 26th to 29th July 2021. The workshop was extremely well attended by an international audience and included some very interesting discussions regarding the current capabilities of simulation codes and the need for further development. Information on the workshop can be found here.
The JOICE project (Joint Austrian In-flight Icing Research Venture 2020+) is an ambitious 3-year research programme focused on making significant improvements in numerical simulation, testing of rotating components, ice protection systems, ice detection systems and more!
AeroTex GmbH is proud to be a partner in the project, which held its kick-off meeting on Tuesday 10th November 2020.
The project is funded by FFG – Die Österreichische Forschungsförderungsgesellschaft under project number 881057.
AeroTex GmbH will be supporting a European helicopter manufacturer to obtain icing certification for the engine inlet.
