ON THE STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF ICE TRANSITING VESSELS
This paper develops a methodology for a rational selection of ice strengthening criteria for ice-transiting commercial ships so that the scantlings of structural members such as hull plate thickness, stiffener size and spacing can be determined. The method predicts the load carried by each transverse bulkhead, the maximum bending moments developed in the longitudinal stringer and transverse framing which result from ice compression on an ice-transiting vessel. The possible ice sheet failure modes are considered to predict the maximum magnitude of ice pressure on the side shell wall structure.
