Mirce Mechanics is a
scientific theory of the motion of in-service systems through Mirce Spacetime that
enables prediction of the work done by them to be made by using Mirce
Equations. However, practical applications of Mirce Mechanics are possible
only, when the physical mechanisms that generate the motion of systems through
positive and negative states are understood. The mechanism of ice building on
an aircraft on the ground is addressed in this paper, as a cause of occurrence
of a negative in-service event. It is generated under certain environmental
conditions when precipitation falling onto the aircraft freezes, mainly on
upper surfaces of the wing and tail, endangering the flight safety. This type
of negative events is followed by de-icing process of the aircraft at the
airport, as a physical mechanism that causes the transition of an aircraft from
the negative to the positive in-service state. Several de-icing methods are
presented in this paper together with the analysis of their impacts on aircraft
