ICE AS A STRUCTURAL MATERIAL IN ARCTIC TRANSPORTATION
It is suggested that ice be frozen inside the double hull of an icebreaker-oil tanker in order to further strengthen and protect the hull while moving through ice-bound Arctic waters. Model tests were conducted to determine the strength increase (if any) achieved by freezing water within a double shell. Test results show a dramatic increase in model strength with the addition of an ice core. Observations are made on the significance of these results.
