MODELLING THE INTERACTION BETWEEN ICE AND SHIPS

This paper presents results of extensive level ice resistance model experiments at 1/48th and 1/36th scale for CCGS LOUIS S. ST. LAURENT in conjunction with full scale transitting performance of that ship in Goose Bay. Model test results at 1/36th scale for CCGS NORMAN McLEOD ROGERS are presented and compared with limited full scale data in the St. Lawrence River. Model test results for USCGC MACKINAW are presented with corresponding full scale results. In the cases presented, model/full scale correlation is very good despite difficulties in correctly scaling down troublesome ice properties. Continued acquisition of full scale data and research into improving model ice properties is urged. (Author)
