Ship-ice-fluid interaction studies on ice resistance of ships

Presented by: 
Jorma Kämäräinen
Thursday 5th October 2017 - 15:30 to 16:15
INI Seminar Room 1
Ice resistance of a ship can be determined by tests made in full scale, tests made in model scale, calculations using empirical formulae, and by using numerical methods based of physical models. Model testing and the use of empirical formulae are important to ship designers, whereas the scientific community is more interested in developing real physical models. Full scale testing is important both for verification of empirical models and physical models. The purpose of this presentation is to present studies on ice resistance of ships, which are based on direct calculation methods based on modelling of physical phenomena. Ice resistance of ships in two types of ice conditions are discussed: Ship ice resistance in level ice and ship ice resistance in a brash ice channel.
