You might like to have a look at some historical articles. Two sources come to mind -

(a) the entire DCA Aviation Safety Digest archive is available at dropbox. You can find the link at PPRuNe with a simple search. Captain John Laming was the driving force behind getting this rather large task underway. There were several repeats of the carby ice article ... I can't recall specific issues so you would need to read through the archives. Actually, that would be a good idea, anyway .. some very useful tales in the Digest.

(b) similar article at ATSB via the link

All the gen you need is in the old articles ...
