MultiElement Airfoils: Airfoil Icing & Microtab Study

MultiElement Airfoils is an effecient tool for analyzing airfoil flows under conditions of special interest. MultiElement offers quick insight into these cases since grid generation is automatic and the solution is accurate under the assumptions of the compressible Euler equations. The following pictures feature airfoils subjected to microtab deployment and ice accumulation.
