Methods of Iceberg Towing

Mathematical models of iceberg towing by a ship connected to the iceberg by mooring lines are considered. Governing equations describing the towing and the tension of mooring lines in two different schemes of the towing are formulated. Stability of steady solutions describing the towing with constant speed is studied. Numerical simulations are realized to compare results of the modeling with experimental results of model towing in Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA) ice tank.
