The effect of a simulated glaze ice accretion on the flow field of a three-dimensional wing is studied experimentally. A PC-based data acquisition and reduction system was used with a four-beam two-color fiber-optic laser Doppler velocimeter (LDV) to map the flow field along three spanwise cuts on the model. Results of the LDV measurements on the upper surface of the finite wing model without the simulated glaze ice accretion are presented for α = 0 degrees at Reynolds number of 1.5 million. Measurements on the centerline of the clean model compared favorably with theory.
