ESPC 2013 - Lethbridge (Alberta)

I was born in Calgary, Alberta, and have lived there all my life. My interests include playing in the Calgary Youth Orchestra, cycling, and flying. I have had a passion for flying since I was 3, and I am currently working towards my pilot's license. This is where the inspiration for my project came from. I was looking for a project to do for science fair this year, and I thought of alternative ways of deicing aircraft. After a few scrapped designs, I finally came up with this one. Next year, I hope to further my research with the help of a professor, including building a model of my design and testing it in a wind tunnel. Post secondary, I hope to earn a degree in Aerospace Engineering, and eventually be involved in air crash investigation. I would like to thank my parents for supporting whatever I do, my teachers, and those in the aviation community who have given me advice and picked apart my designs.

Deicing by Design
Région:Calgary Youth
Ville:Calgary, AB
École:Webber Academy
Sommaire:This project is an alternative to existing aircraft deicing systems. By forcing compressed air through small holes in a wing, pressure is placed on accumulated ice, causing it to fracture and to remove from the surface. It is ideal for small aircraft because it is light, simple, and inexpensive, unlike some other systems.
