RESULTS OF FULL SCALE TRIALS IN ICE OF CCGS PIERRE RADISSON
In July, 1978, the Canadian Coast Guard accepted delivery of the first of the new "R-Class" icebreakers, the CCGS Pierre Radisson. The ship was extensively instrumented prior to her maiden voyage which was to take her from Victoria, B.C. through the Northwest Passage to her new home port of Quebec. Full scale data gathered in thick first year and multi year ice in the Arctic and subsequently during winter operations in the Saguenay River, St. Lawrence River and the Gulf of St. Lawrence provided performance information for a wide range of ice type, thickness and strength. This data is presented together with 1/36 scale model experiment results.
