Recent Advance in Modelling the Hydrodynamic Effect on Ice Motion and Ice-Structure Interaction Offshore

High-fidelity models of sea-ice dynamics and ice-structure interactions require proper accounting for the hydrodynamic forces. This paper gives its reader a systematic view on the recent achievements in the modelling of the hydrodynamic interactions of ice with winds, water flow, waves and floating structures. To emphasise relevant applications, the paper touches upon several topics such as the prediction of iceberg drift, modelling the dynamics of ice floes in the sea, physical ice management, station-keeping in Arctic waters, ice-structure interactions and the hydrodynamic aspects of ice loads on offshore structures. All the considered hydrodynamic problems are accompanied with references to well-established or newly-developed models that may be applied in particular cases.
