Ice Action on Ship Hull: What Do We Know and What Do We Miss?

Abstract

The paper describes different methods to clarify ice action on ship hull; what different methods have given and what information on ice action is still missing. First what can be obtained by observations is described. Observations, be they visual or about consequences of ice action like hull damage, give an idea of the loading process based on the breaking pattern in level ice or impact with a discrete ice floe. Also an understanding about the load patch being relatively narrow vertically and long horizontally emerges. An estimate of the load magnitude can be obtained by estimating what load gives the observed damages. Theoretical studies include a model for collision with level ice or smaller ice floes (Popov model) and also a model for collision with massive multi-year ice floes. Theoretical studies have also analysed the creation of the breaking pattern of level ice. All these studies give information about the load patch and total maximum force. In the last chapter some ship measurements are described. These have mostly endorsed the observed ice load magnitude and also the small load height of the load patch. The aim of the paper is to give an insight of how the ice action on ship hull can be described, even if only a selected number of studies is included.
