Development of New Lagrangian Computational Methods for Ice-Ship Interaction Problems: NICESHIP Project
- 51 Downloads
This document presents the activities carried out to date (04/2019) in the project ‘Development of new Lagrangian computational methods for ice-ship interaction problems’ (NICE-SHIP). The NICE-SHIP project aims at developing a new generation of computational methods, based on the integration of innovative Lagrangian particle-based and finite element procedures for the analysis of the operation of a vessel in an iced sea, taking into account the different possible conditions of the ice. It is expected that the computational analysis techniques to be developed in NICE-SHIP will allow ice-class vessel designers to accurately evaluate the loads acting on the structure of a ship navigating in iced-seas and, in particular, to determine the ice resistance of the ship in different ice conditions.
