Droplet impact on aircraft surfaces at high altitude can lead to ice forming on the leading edge of the aerofoil, with potentially serious aerodynamic consequences. In order to develop improved technology to prevent ice accretion, detailed understanding of the physical processes within the splash is required. A numerical model to deal with the behaviour of very high speed impact (around 100 m/s) is presented, incorporating the key physical features required to accurately model droplet splashing in this regime.
