Description: CRREL Report
Abstract: This report presents a general discussion of model testing of ships in level ice. The main points covered are: 1) modeling criteria for ships in ice, which must take into account the presence of a solid boundary at the water surface; 2) types of model ice used in various tanks—saline ice, urea-doped ice, EG/AD/S ice and synthetic ice; 3) techniques for growing model ice sheets, and achieving and monitoring the required ice properties; 4) limitations of both model ice and property measurement techniques; 5) model testing procedures for EHP and SHP tests and their limitations; 6) comparison between model test results and available full-scale trials data; 7) existing empirical and analytical or semi-analytical algorithms for predicting ship performance in level ice; 8) current research at CRREL and other research facilities to improve modeling techniques and data interpretation; and 9) novel bow designs for ice-transiting vessels.
