Duration: 01.06.2018 – 31.03.2021

Project Outline:

Objective: Investigation of ice loads on deformable ship structures 

  • Identify the influence of spatial and temporal variations on ship structures
  • Develop a first principle-based design ice load approach which is suitable for operational guidance for ice classed and none-ice classed ships

Approach and Tasks:

  • Conduction of large scale ice-structure interaction experiments
  • Evaluation of ice-structure experiments
  • Development of a first principle-based design approach
